Now we can blame global warming on RHIC.

They call this a “quark-gluon plasma”, which I love to say ... “quark-gluon plasma”, that is. I remember years ago they used to talk about the “temperature of hell” as being the theoretically maximum possible temperature, because any attempt to make it hotter would just cause more particles to be created, which subtracts from the kinetic energy, thus cooling it.
The quark-gluon plasma is in this realm. They make graphs of the “chemical potential” ( a misnomer surely! ) of the quarks and gluons, which is a quantitative way of dealing with the “maximum temperature” idea.
It’s definitely a mind-blow, as we used to say.

We won't know just how hot the plasma was for at least a few weeks because the measurements are very delicate and have to be converted to degrees.
Yeah, that conversion to degrees is hard!

Wow that seems really important in the big scheme of life. I think I’ll put a worm on my tongue and wait with baited breath until they report the temperature reached.
