This liquid hydrogen bubble chamber photograph is the third observation of the production of a negatively-charged Omega meson. The sketch beside the photograph shows the proper assignments of a particle to each track. The paths of neutral particles, which produce no bubbles in the liquid hydrogen and therefore leaves no tracks, are shown by dashed lines. The presence and properties of the neutral particles are established by the analysis of the tracks of their charged decay products or the application of the laws of conservation of mass and energy, or a combination of both. The incoming K-negative meson from the Alternating Gradient Synchotron collides with an unseen, stationary proton in the liquid hydrogen with the resultant production of a neutral.
