Quark Stars Could Produce Biggest Bang

Quarks, the smallest building blocks of all matter, are mysterious and elusive – so elusive that scientists can only study them by smashing subatomic particles against one another at super-high speeds so they break into their constituent parts. The resulting quarks stick around for a fleeting moment, and then they instantaneously recombine. This instability makes quarks extremely difficult to study, requiring complex equipment such as giant accelerator machines, which create the tiny subatomic collisions.
