If you want to know how the universe works, part of the answer lies in understanding the building blocks of matter—before they became inextricably bound within the protons, neutrons, and atoms that make up everything visible in our universe today.
Nearly 200 scientists trekked to Brookhaven Lab—some from nearby, others from institutions as far as Europe and Asia—to talk about these important topics for the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS) user communities, and the Lab.
New supercomputing calculations provide the first evidence that particles predicted by the theory of quark-gluon interactions but never before observed are being produced in heavy-ion collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC).
Robert Tribble, a widely respected physicist who has played a key role in charting the future direction of nuclear science in the U.S., has been named Deputy Director for Science & Technology at Brookhaven National Laboratory, effective February 24, 2014.
