Brookhaven Physicists Produce "Doubly Strange Nuclei" 7 writes: "Advanced physics news! Physicists have produced double "strange quarks" atoms using the biggest Proton Beam Laser on Earth... "UPTON, NY - Strange science has taken a great leap forward at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory. There, physicists have produced a significant number of "doubly strange nuclei," or nuclei containing two strange quarks. Studies of these nuclei will help scientists explore the forces between nuclear particles, particularly within so-called strange matter, and may contribute to a better understanding of neutron stars, the super dense remains of burnt-out stars, which are thought to contain large quantities of strange quarks.""
