Streamer chamber photo of an oxygen ion collision in the NA35 experiment at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory outside Geneva. The oxygen ion has collided at left with a nucleus of lead, producing a spray of particles that shoot out towards the right- hand side of the chamber. One particle is a low- energy electron which spirals inwards in the chamber's magnetic field, its track growing more dense as it loses energy.
