Collision Showing Collective Flow Behavior

Caption: This is a three-dimensional view of a proton-lead collision that produced collective flow behavior. The green lines are the trajectories of the sub-atomic particles produced by the collision reconstructed by the CMS tracking system. The red and blue bars represent the energy measured by the instrument's two sets of calorimeters.
