Fermilab's Collider Detector, the size of a three-story house, captured firm evidence for the existence of the top quark by recording the particles produced by collisions of protons and anti-protons in the Tevatron. Further evidence from the D0 detector on the other side of the accelerator loop clinched the discovery. (Unit: 1)
