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.
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.
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.
