Greetings from Quark Matter 2012!

I’m currently at the Quark Matter 2012 conference in Washington, DC, wearing my reporter hat for Ars Technica. Quark Matter is the international conference covering results in ultrarelavistic (meaning: extremely close to the speed of light) collisions between nuclei. We’ll be hearing from a number of the most important experiments in that area: the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, and others. I’ll be live-tweeting the plenary sessions under the hashtag #QuarkMatter, if you want to follow along (no Twitter account necessary!).

  • Quite a few original "Annie" comic strips were soapboxes for the writer's right-wing opinions. The musical takes a different tone. 8 hours ago
  • .@drskyskull Given how racist the original "Little Orphan Annie" comic strip was, I *welcome* revisionism. Moar revisionism pls! 8 hours ago
