For what it's worth, I'm actually the Chancellor of Germany. The fact that I was born a white hispanic (that's a thing now) in the US is just a quirk of genetics. I intend to have political reassignment surgery to correct this fault, and make my physical political position match my actual political position.
Before we had modern detectors, the above 2 methods for visualizing and recording particle collisions were used, among others im sure... im no expert, the **** just fascinates me. A light was then shown through the cloud chamber so little old ladies could trace them out on tracing paper, and you get this:
heres a tracing table with the shadows of someone doing the tracing
Each little spiral or curve is an electron, or proton or whatever subatomic particle. Based on the radius of the curve, and other data, they can determine velocity and particle type, etc.
Now we have computer generations and absolutely nutty sensor arrays, and its all in 3d. Heres today equivalent:
Ive also seriously debated doing this
And this is the actual pic I possibly want to enlarge, its too big to upload to the forum, so you get a link
and heres a good example of a bubble chamber in which you can see features of the actual chamber transposed upon the film. you can see a hatch and what appear to be some sort of liner. Im opretty sure this is the bubble detector at Fermi lab pictured in the above wiki link.
Or you can do 2x8 on heavy regular paper of the top half of the trace and then the bottom half and butt them together. Or tack them to frames with a small space between them. Shop: Photo Banners: Photo Banner Designs
