In the suburban town of Dubna is running the first experiment on newly built by the joint Institute for nuclear research (JINR) ion accelerator complex NICA (NICA, Nuclotron-based Ion Collider fAcility). Reportedly, the device is created with the aim of studying the properties of dense baryonic matter.
Baryonic matter — it is, in fact, the usual form of matter, including elementary particles, which constitute matter. There is also antibaryon matter, or antimatter. On the basis of the suburban Collider scientists want to recreate in the laboratory the state of matter in which resided the universe immediately after the Big Bang. As reported in an interview with TASS Director of the laboratory of physics of the joint Institute for nuclear research, Vladimir Kekelidze,
"the First experiment started two days ago on the extracted beams from the existing superconducting accelerator Nuclotron, which built the Collider. Besides the study of dense baryonic matter, heavy-ion collisions, which is still only at an embryonic stage parallel to solve interesting, so far unexplored problem: the interaction between the two components of any nucleus, two nucleons when their forces are changing your status from attractive to repulsive. Physical program of the project of NIKA started."
Also according to the scientist, it became known that at the moment NICK works on manufacturing and installation of individual parts and components, and information was received on the progress of works on building of object.
"the Synchrotron-booster (one of the accelerators) will launch this year, and a building for the Collider will be completed in 2019. Installation of the Collider will start in 2020. In the same 2020 will start the installation for the study of heavy ions collisions. At full capacity, it should be out in 2023".

the human Touch is always nice, but other than that, if you believe new research group of scientists from France and Israel, they have a number of very interesting effects.
the Early stage of formation remains largely a mystery to modern science.
