More Pictures and Video from ALICE

With the outer tracking systems turned on the images of heavy ion collisions from ALICE get even better. Up to 3000 charged particles are produced and tracked as the radiate out from the central collision point. As they reach the outer detector they are bent by powerful magnets so that the energy of each one can be measured to get a complete picture of the fallout from the quark gluon plasma produced in the centre of the detector.
