Physicists identify unique signature to confirm quark-gluon plasma in universe

Computer simulation of a merger between two dense neutron stars. After the merger, a phase transition from ordinary hadronic matter (red-yellow) to quark matter (green) takes place. In the first fractions of a second of our universe’s existence, the energy density was so incredibly high that there were no protons and neutrons, just a hot …
