CMS detector tracking energy

READY TO WORK  The CMS detector tracks the amount of energy (length of bars) deposited by different kinds of particles (color of bars) that were produced during a May 20 test of the Large Hadron Collider. Researchers collided protons at a record energy of 13 trillion electron volts. On June 3, the LHC began running continuously at this energy.
