[quote:Anonymous Coward 1443102:MV8xNTQyMDg2XzI1NDYyNDMyXzg1NzU3NTAw] [quote:Anonymous Coward 996678] These temperatures are achieved on such small scales that you could actually hold the ionic particle in your hand with no effect. [/quote] True, a single subatomic particle at that temp wouldn't even warm your hand. [/quote]
Scientists using the world’s largest atom smasher have created some of the hottest and densest matter ever achieved on Earth achieving a state of matter called a quark gluon plasma that existed in the milliseconds after the big bang 13.7 billion years ago.
Physicists using the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, the European Centre for Nuclear Research, smashed heavy lead ions together at close to the speed of light, generating temperatures of more than 1.6 trillion degrees Celsius, 100,000 times hotter than the center of the Sun.
