A simulated collision event viewed along the beampipe.
The event is one in which a microscopic-blackhole was produced and decayed immediately. The black area in the center with many particle tracks represents the inner detector (pixel detector, semiconductor tracker, and transition...

This animation was created of an actual ATLAS collision event on 5 April, 2010. This animation shows from the particle view the race through the LHC, ending in the detector where the particle collision occurs. First candidate for an event with a W boson decaying to electron + neutrino seen in 7...

This animation was created of an actual ATLAS collision event in 2010. This animation shows from the particle view the race through the LHC, ending in the detector where the particle collision occurs. Candidate for an event with a Z boson decaying to two muons.
