Are You For Real?: Scientists Set New Record For World's Hottest Temperature, 7.2-TRILLION Degrees

Scientists have set a new record for the world's hottest temperature, with the creation of a plasma that measured 7.2-trillion degrees Fahrenheit. That...is steamy. Also, this erotic dinosaur fiction I've been working on: I pretended my feet were stuck in the tar, all the while waving my backside at the raptor seductively.

The researchers were able to produce such a massive temperature only for a fraction of a second using the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at the lab. The physicists sent gold ions flying in opposite directions around the 2.4-mile collider at a velocity near the speed of light.


The gold ions collided inside one of the six test chambers and the collision produced a substance known as quark-gluon plasma. This is described as a nearly frictionless liquid is about 250,000 times hotter than the core of the sun.

Listen, I think we should all get to vote before scientists can just run off and perform these potentially apocalypse-inducing experiments. I mean, it's not like they KNOW what's gonna happen when they create a 7.2-trillion degree temperature. What if it had sucked up all the world's oxygen? SPOILER: We'd be dead. And for what? To be able to cook frozen pizzas faster?

Thanks to Clizz, who's a firm believer that the world will end because an experiment went wrong.

    how is this temp. measured ??

  • Dani

    and how exactly they measured this temperature?

    Read a damn comic book!! If Johnny Storm goes supernova he can burn off the atmosphere. A supernova can reach temps at 100,000,000,000 Kelvin, 6,000 times the temp of the core of our sun. Wtf are these ppl thinking? What if it didn't last a second? What if they couldn't contain the heat?

    Thats why its so damn hot out right now

  • That's hot.

  • That might be the answer for my cold feet in bed

    how do you contain that type of temperature?

  • "To show the minute quantity of plasma produced, if RHIC ran for twenty years, it would consume only about one gram of gold."

  • The point that is heated is so small and so brief, that there is need for containment.
