The Solenoidal Tracker at RHIC (STAR) is a detector which specializes in tracking the thousands of particles produced by each ion collision at RHIC. Weighing 1,200 tons, STAR is a massive detector used to search for signatures of quark-gluon plasma.
The STAR detector at Brookhaven's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). STAR searches for signatures of the form of matter that RHIC aims to create: the quark-gluon plasma. #lhc #hadron #cern #supercollider #collider #particle #accelerator
