Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, Brookhaven National Laboratory  2005-08-24

 

I returned to Brookhaven Nation Laboratory yesterday to see the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (i.e. - atom smasher).

 

As indicated on the web link below, these devices measure what is known as the 'quark-gluon plasma', the type of matter postulated to have existed just microseconds after the Big Bang
