See this "Picture of the Month" from Particle Physics UK for an image of the nuclear disintegration that occurs when a nucleus is struck by a particle containing a strange quark. The site includes commentary on the tracks in the reaction.  The 1952 discovery in Poland was celebrated on a stamp, a postcard, and a postmark, which are pictured.
