Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). The white points show "hits" recorded by particles emerging from the collision as they strike sensors in three layers of the HFT. Scientists use the hits to reconstruct charged particle tracks (red and green lines) to measure the relative abundance of certain kinds of particles emerging from the collision—in this case, charmed lambda particles.
