The front cover shows a simulation of the collisions of the lead-ion beams at CERN, as recorded by the detector ALICE. The collisions produce a plasma of quarks and gluons in a sizable volume, with a density greater than that in a neutron star and with a temperature 100 000 times that in the Sun's core. These conditions match those a few microseconds after the big bang beginning of the universe. In our normal low-energy world, quarks and gluons are always locked up inside the confines of particles such as protons and neutrons. However, in the high-energy collisions within ALICE, they undergo deconfinement to produce the plasma, which is a unique state of matter that acts like an ideal fluid with no viscosity. Such was the state of the universe just after the big bang. --This text refers to the Loose Leaf edition.
