Breaking out of Confinement
Despite what you might think, the hottest matter in the Universe is not 
found anywhere in outer space. Rather, it was first produced ten years 
ago in eastern Long Island by smashing gold nuclei at nearly the speed 
of light. In this talk we will discuss the physics of nuclear matter at 
incredibly high temperature and pressure, as well as the experimental 
tools used to analyze it.
