MEDIA ADVISORY: Latest Findings on Primordial 'Soup' and Nature's Strongest Force
Physicists from the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), the only operating collider in the U.S., located at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), located at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), will present the latest results from their explorations of the primordial quark-gluon plasma that permeated the early universe at the Quark Matter 2012 conference in Washington, D.C.

A century of discoveries - Physicists celebrate centenary of the discovery of cosmic rays
A constant shower of subatomic particles rains down from space. A hundred years ago, this "cosmic radiation" was discovered by the Austrian physicist Victor Franz Hess. Among other things, the discovery laid the foundation for a whole new field of research: high energy physics - which recently gave us, for instance, the first experimental evidence for the Higgs boson. An anniversary conference looks at the past milestones of cosmic ray research and at future experiments.
