Caption: Black hole event, ATLAS detector. Simulation of results of a 'black hole' event observed in the ATLAS detector at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory. ATLAS (A Toroidal LHC Apparatus) is one of seven particle detectors constructed at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The LHC, the world's largest and most powerful particle collider, began operating in 2008. Microscopic black holes may be produced in particle collisions due to high-energy cosmic ray impacts. ATLAS allows such events to be studied. The colors of the tracks show different particles emerging from the black hole decay following the proton-proton collision. Image published in April 2014.
