Strange antiparticles pop out of RHIC's quark-gluon plasma

So far, the LHC has been spending its time ramming protons together, leaving Brookhaven's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) the king of the hill when it comes to smashing larger atomic nuclei. When the nuclei of gold atoms collide within RHIC, their components dissolve into a high-energy state called a quark-gluon plasma (the LHC will eventually smash lead atoms to similar effect). A paper in today's Science describes some of the more exotic items that briefly emerge from the wreckage: the antiparticle equivalent of Deuterium, with strange quarks replacing some of the more familiar ones.
In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

antiparticle equivalent of Deuterium

aka anti-Deuterium, a very close cousin to anti-Hydrogen.. these are not just particles these are atoms.. anti-Atoms.. atoms of anti-matter. This is big.

So you need plent of Gold in your smasher to produce enough anti-Deuterium to bang against your stored Deuterium to power your interstelluar space craft...
