    Are these events from intersecting beams or are the collisions due to other random stuff?

    EDIT: intersecting beams it is. Probably because of protons colliding, but not completely headon. Ofcourse you eventually look for quark-quark collisions. I take it that focussing the beams would be the next big thing to accomplish?
