Urbana—In order to examine the workings of the smallest bits of matter, particle physicists smash subatomic particles together at tremendously high speeds and then analyze the resultant sprays (called jets) of even smaller particles, following them through their various decay paths. Huge quantities of data are taken from thousands upon thousands of collisions, the data are analyzed by powerful computers, and the ultimate findings contribute to our understanding of how our world and everything in it works on the most fundamental level.
