BACK TO WORK  The CMS detector tracks the trajectories of particles (yellow and red lines) created in proton collisions at the Large Hadron Collider on June 3 — the first day of data collection after more than two years of upgrades. The green and blue bars represent the amount of energy deposited by different types of particles.
