Research Center Established to Explore the Least Understood and Strongest Force Behind Visible Matter

Stony Brook University and Brookhaven National Laboratory have established the Center for Frontiers of Nuclear Science to help scientists better understand the building blocks of visible matter. The new Center will push the frontiers of knowledge about quarks, gluons and their interactions that form protons, neutrons, and ultimately 99.9 percent of the mass of atoms—the bulk of the visible universe.  More...
