What happens when you smash lead ions into each other at really high speeds?

You get fireballs of quark-gluon plasma at 10 trillion °C acting like a perfect liquid instead of a gas.

This is the highest temp ever in an experiment and the fireballs were described as “mini Big Bangs.”

This all happened in the Large Hadron Collider at CERN this week.

Here’s the New Scientist article:  LHC creates mini big bangs and incredible heat

Since everything is about me, I’ll write… oh, forget it.
