Atoms were juggled in an atomic fountain by launching two balls of laser-cooled Cs atoms in rapid succession. The 2 balls collide near the top of the fountain and the scattered atoms were detected by measuring the changes in the atoms' vertical velocity. Measuring the distribution of the velocity component along the collision axis gives the differential cross section.
