Caption: Z particle. Computer display of the decay of a Z- zero particle in the DELPHI detector at CERN, the European centre for particle physics near Geneva. DELPHI is one of 4 giant particle detectors at the LEP electron-positron collider. The display shows elements of the cylindrical DELPHI detector in blue. Orange dots and crosses are "hits" recorded by the detector's instruments. From these hits, the computer derives tracks of particles (yellow & green) created in the electron-positron annihilat- ion. The Z particle - one of the carriers of the weak nuclear force - lives too briefly to be seen itself; it is inferred from the other particles.
