Neutron Stars and String Theory in a Lab: Chilled Atoms Give Clues to Deep Space and Particle Physics
ScienceDaily (Dec. 11, 2010) — Using lasers to contain some ultra-chilled atoms, a team of scientists has measured the viscosity or stickiness of a gas often considered to be the sixth state of matter. The measurements verify that this gas can be used as a “scale model” of exotic matter, such as super-high temperature superconductors, the nuclear matter of neutron stars, and even the state of matter created microseconds after the Big Bang.
