String theory may hold answers about quark-gluon plasma
from Symmetry Magazine
Recreating the conditions present just after the Big Bang has given experimentalists a glimpse into how the universe formed. Now, scientists have begun to see striking similarities between the properties of the early universe and a theory that aims to unite gravity with quantum mechanics, a long-standing goal for physicists. "On the theory side, black hole physics looks the same as quark-gluon plasma physics," says David Mateos, a research professor at the University of Barcelona in Spain.
