Secrets of the hypernuclei flux: first observations at the relativistic heavy ion collider

Physicists at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) have made the first observation of the directed flow of hypernuclei, rare nuclei containing at least one hyperon, in particle collisions. Hyperons, which contain a strange quark, are thought to be abundant in neutron stars, one of the densest objects in the universe. By simulating these conditions… Read More »
