This Flash animation tracks the data that will be produced by the Large Hadron Collider particle physics experiments, from their origin in collisions 100 meters underground to the laptops of scientists all over the world. The animation, developed at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, includes an introduction to computing for particle physics experiments and to the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid.
