Default For One Tiny Instant Physicists May Have Broken a Law of Nature

Story: http://www.physorg.com/news188211977.html


Quote:
The plasma "bubble" created in the collisions at RHIC lasted for a mere millionth of a billionth of a billionth of a second
That's crazy... how do you even measure something so quick?

Quote:
When the gold nuclei, traveling at 99.999% of the speed of light, smashed together, the plasma that resulted was so energetic that a tiny cube of it with sides measuring about a quarter of the width of a human hair would contain enough energy to power the entire United States for a year.
Tiny particle containing enough energy to power the US for a year = endless possibilities.
