If you want to know how the universe works, part of the answer lies in understanding the building blocks of matter—before they became inextricably bound within the protons, neutrons, and atoms that make up everything visible in our universe today.
Nearly 200 scientists trekked to Brookhaven Lab—some from nearby, others from institutions as far as Europe and Asia—to talk about these important topics for the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS) user communities, and the Lab.
Researchers at Berkeley Lab and their collaborators have honed a way to probe the quark-gluon plasma, the kind of matter that dominated the universe immediately after the big bang, recreated regularly in particle ion collisions at Brookhaven's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider and Europe's Large Hadron Collider.
