Collider Detector at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

Collider Detector at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. The Collider Detector is part of a complex of atom-equipment scientists at Fermilab have been building. The 45 ton, two story devise is designed to capture and catalog subnuclear fragments that scatter from head-on collisions of protons and antiprotons. It uses about 100,000 electronic channels to gather and record data from each collision. Scientists believe the detector will greatly improve understanding of the makeup of the universe. USDOE.
