Research of Marcel Schein, professor in the department of Physics and in the Enrico Fermi Institute for Nuclear Studies, and director of the Laboratory for High Energy Physics and Cosmic Radiation at the University of Chicago. Photograph of a cosmic ray event captured February 1956 during a balloon flight at 104,000 feet. A primary cosmic ray proton is shown entering the plate (from left), striking another proton, thus producing a shower of pions, the elementary particles which are part of protons. Twenty paths (numbered right) were produced and energy generated was calculated at 3,700 billion electron volts.
