Caption: A closer view of the 15-foot bubble chamber in the neutrino experimental area at Fermilab. Visible is the 22-foot diameter stainless steel vacuum chamber which surrounds the bubble chamber itself. The chamber also has internal & external "picket fence" electronic detectors to identify incoming cosmic muons from muons produced by events within the chamber. The spherical chamber has "portholes" for 6 cameras (visible on top of the outer vacuum chamber) to take photos of events for studies of hadron and neutrino physics. The bubble chamber, which started operations in 1973/74, can pulse once a second. (June '84)
