Early universe matter created in the laboratory - space short science news

Scientists have created tiny droplets of extremely hot matter that are thought to have filled the early universe, i.e. the first microseconds after the Big Bang.

The matter was in a liquid-like state called quark gluon plasma, and took the form of circles, ellipses and triangles.

Scientists have never been closer before to answering the question of what the smallest amount of early universe matter could have been.
