Explosions at the sub-atomic level are once again captured on film. Brilliant streaks of light, released from particles many times smaller than individual atoms streak into our universe while lighting up sub-atomic space. As scientists struggle to harness this particular form of energy creation for use in our world, they produce events that make for some very beautiful photography, as seen below. I have been fortunate enough to be present for three instances of these sci-fi subatomic photographic events. The first was back in July of 2009, and can be seen here. The second, which was only a couple months ago, in November of 2009 can be seen here.
