PAIRING UP  Antiprotons are among the particles produced when gold nuclei collide inside a particle accelerator. For the first time, researchers at Brookhaven National Laboratory have measured the interaction between these antiprotons.

subatomic particles captured in Brookhaven collider

The 20th century brought many surprising discoveries about the subatomic realm, including that there are many, many types of subatomic particles, some of which are seen above in the aftermath of gold ion collisions at Brookhaven National Laboratory's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider.
