HERA, the world's first electron proton collider, has allowed scientists to look into the heart of matter with unprecedented resolution. Fascinating results have been obtained, such as the observation of a rapid increase in the number of virtual quarks, antiquarks, and gluons visible in scattering processes as the energy is increased. The HERA program has recently begun a new phase which promises a large increase in data and further exciting results.
