WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Scientists have created the hottest temperature ever in the lab -- 4 trillion degrees Celsius -- hot enough to break matter down into the kind of soup that existed microseconds after the birth of the universe.
But that is enough to give physicists fodder for years of study that they hope will help them understand why and how the universe formed.
What the physicists are looking for are tiny irregularities that can explain why matter clumped out of the primeval hot soup.
