EXTENDED

The front cover shows a simulation of the collisions of the lead-ion beams at CERN, as recorded by the detector ALICE. The collisions produce a plasma of quarks and gluons in a sizable volume, with a density greater than that in a neutron star and with a temperature 100 000 times that in the Sun’s core. These conditions match those a few microseconds after the big bang beginning of the universe. In our normal low-energy world, quarks and gluons are always locked up inside the confines of particles such as protons and neutrons. However, in the high-energy collisions within ALICE, they undergo deconfinement to produce the plasma, which is a unique state of matter that acts like an ideal fluid with no viscosity. Such was the state of the universe just after the big bang. –This text refers to the Loose Leaf edition.
