Atom-smashing scientists reach highest ever recorded man-made temperature - 100,000 TIMES hotter then the Sun's interior
Physicists at CERN's Large Hadron Collider have broken a record by achieving the hottest man-made temperatures ever - 100,000 times hotter than the interior of the Sun.

Scientists there collided lead ions to create a searingly hot sub-atomic soup known as quark-gluon plasma at about 5.5trillion C, the hottest temperature ever recorded in an experiment.

That's about 40 per cent hotter the old record, set by the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory, New York, by smashing gold ions together.

ALICE, an experiment built to discover the beginnings of the universe, which has now been used to create the hottest man made temperature.

But CERN's scientists weren't just trying to outdo the Yanks.

Scientists hope that their research will give them an insight into conditions just after the Big Bang.

Scientists believe that at the point in our universe's history quarks and gluons – basic building blocks of matter – were not confined inside composite particles such as protons and neutrons, as they are today.

Instead, they moved freely in a state of matter known as 'quark–gluon plasma'.

Collisions of lead ions in the LHC, the world’s most powerful particle accelerator, recreate for a fleeting moment conditions similar to those of the early universe.
By examining a billion or so of these collisions, the experiments were able to make more precise measurements of the properties of matter under these extreme conditions.

The results came from the LHC's ALICE - A Large Ion Collider Experiment. On Monday the ALICE team presented their findings at the Quark Matter 2012 conference in Washington DC.

Unity is the great goal toward which humanity moves irresistibly. But it becomes fatal, destructive of the intelligence, the dignity, the well-being of individuals and peoples whenever it is formed without regard to liberty, either by violent means or under the authority of any theological, metaphysical, political, or even economic idea. That patriotism which tends toward unity without regard to liberty is an evil patriotism, always disastrous to the popular and real interests of the country it claims to exalt and serve. Often, without wishing to be so, it is a friend of reaction – an enemy of the revolution, i.e., the emancipation of nations and men.

LOL!, Nice find:)
