ALICE experiment announces first results from LHC’s lead-ion collisions

In the first measurement, scientists counted the charged particles that were produced from a few thousand of the most central lead-ion collisions—those where the lead nuclei hit each other head-on. The result showed that about 18,000 particles are produced from collisions of lead ions, which is about 2.2 times more particles than produced in similar…… Continue reading ALICE experiment announces first results from LHC’s lead-ion collisions
