The Universe was just a few microseconds old when the gradually cooling matter organized itself into the massive particles that form much of the visible matter today, protons and neutrons. The fascinating world of the hot Universe is recreated in huge particle accelerators. These experiments go beyond the study of the primordial world, as they can probe a whole new dimension by tuning the balance of particles vs antiparticles. This imbalance, the net baryon density, could be tuned to the extreme, as that can be found in neutron stars. Researchers of Uni Wuppertal launched a large scale simulation project to calculate how baryon density impacts temperature where today's particles emerge from the primordial plasma.
