A Cesium-137 source was placed outside Supersaturated Environments’ Cloud Chamber. This source produced 667 keV gamma rays, which interacted with the air filling the chamber, upon passing from right to left in the photograph. The most common mode of interaction under these conditions is Compton scattering.
