Impressive decay

    This is the most impressive image I've seen so far! I count 10 objects that originate from an off-center vertex. They are very close together and two of them are fairly difficult to see.

    Nice one!
    And it has a muon in it, which is interesting. The muons are the green lines matched to thick red lines in the outer (blue) detector.
    (Muons are heavier cousins of the electron.)

    That's really neat. Thanks for the information! It's impressive that we see each individual muon. That helps gives me a sense of the scale of the objects we're tracking.

    Definitely one of the most impressive ones I've seen, too! Great find!
