How did this happen? A scientific laboratory operated by the United States government has published results of a study of Big Bang related conditions that could be interpreted to suggest that it took God longer than seven days to create the universe!
The substance that existed just after the universe was born was more of a liquid than a gas, according to an experiment that claims to have created a new state of hot, dense matter.
Physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory smashed together basic particles of atomic nuclei, called quarks and gluons, in the giant Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC).
Out of that demolition derby came something unexpected: instead of a gas of free quarks and gluons, the matter seemed to be liquid- like, according to a press release from the laboratory released on Monday.
The research will be published in the journal Nuclear Physics A.
