-Hyperon Production by 8.3 BeV/ c -Mesons
Zh. Eksp. Teor. Fiz. 38 (1960) 1356;

One event of production and decay of a hyperon was found out of 40,000 pictures obtained by a beam of negative 8.3 0.6 BeV/c pions in a propane bubble chamber with a constant magnetic field of 13,700 oe. A photograph and diagram of this event are shown.
...The probability of a chance coincidence in one picture of various events which may have imitated the phenomenon under consideration is, according to our estimate, ~ 10-9.
We consider the most probable reaction in the primary star to be C Ko o K p + + recoil nucleus For the lifetime of the we obtained the value (1.18 0.07) x 10-10 sec.\~ Hence, the data presented is evidence of the fact that we have observed a new type of particle, the charged antihyperon.
