Caption: Particle collision. Computer display of the spray of particles produced in an electron-positron collision in the L3 detector at CERN, the European centre for particle physics near Geneva. L3 is one of 4 giant particle detectors at the LEP electron- positron collider. The display shows the tracks of particles created in the electron-positron annihilation and recorded by L3P's instruments as pink, red, blue and green lines. The Greek and Roman letters in white are the names of some of the particles: pi-plus, K-minus, etc. The huge scale of the event, and of the detector, is indicated by the human figure at bottom left.
