Measuring temperatures similar to those occurring in star collisions in the lab

Simulations of nuclear matter in collisions yielding extreme conditions of density and temperature. Credit: The HADES Collaboration. Collisions between neutron stars are fascinating cosmic events that lead to the formation of numerous chemical elements. Temperatures during these collisions are exponentially high, typically reaching up to hundreds of billions of degrees Celsius. The HADES collaboration, a…
