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
