1986: 30 years of heavy ion research in accelerators at #CERN⠀ ⠀ #ThrowbackThursday #TBT⠀ ⠀ Tomorrow we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the heavy ions research in accelerators. Indeed, on 18 November 1986, the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) delivered its first heavy ion beam at CERN in order to study the possibility that quark-gluon plasma was more than just a theory. The aim was to “deconfine” quarks by smashing the heavy ions into targets. This image shows an oxygen ion collision in a lead target at an energy of 3.2 TeV. The photograph was taken in a detector known as a streamer chamber.⠀ ⠀ Nowadays, heavy ion research continues at CERN. To recreate conditions similar to those of the very early universe, the LHC makes head-on collisions between massive ions travelling with velocities close to the velocity of light. The extreme temperature and density at the point of collision of hundreds of protons and neutrons smashing into one another forms a minuscule fireball in which everything “melts” into a quark-gluon plasma.⠀ ⠀ Read more about heavy ion research at CERN: http://cern.ch/go
