“New evidence for small drops of quark-gluon plasma?”

Summary: Particles emerging from even the lowest energy collisions of deuterons
with heavy nuclei at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider exhibit the formation
soup of quarks and gluons, the fundamental building blocks of visible matter.
First, the deuterons are called “lowest energy” but are still relativistic and
very fast – but
the fact that they see these results at all (as does Holmlid) at the lowest
input they have
could be indicative of a “back-door” route to thermal gain, not involving
fusion and 50-100
times more energetic than fusing deuterons to helium.
The point being that the annihilation of hydrogen is more easily achievable
Possibly the annihilation event is achieved with a laser and dense hydrogen in
a two-step process.
This is the most important message and meaning of Holmlid’s oeuvre.
OTOH, this is also the time when Labs are looking for the last bit of stray
