  • You have used the principle of conservation of momentum to determine the top quark mass.

  • Mass does indeed come from energy as Einstein predicted.

  • You have gained some experience using actual data to see how scientists analyze particle collisions.

  • You may begin to understand that the last pieces in The Standard Model puzzle have been assembled from the enegry in Fermilab's Tevatron.
