[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We survey the early history of the discovery of quark gluon plasma and the
early history of the Universe, beginning with the present day and reaching deep
into QGP and almost beyond. We introduce cosmological Universe dynamics and
connect the different Universe epochs with one another. We describe some of the
many remaining open questions that emerge.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We propose to search for nuclear density or greater compact ultra dense
objects (CUDOs), which could constitute a significant fraction of the
dark matter . Considering their high density, the gravitational tidal
forces are significant and atomic-density matter cannot stop an
impacting CUDO, which punctures the surface of the target body,
pulverizing, heating and entraining material near its trajectory through
the target . Because impact features endure over geologic timescales,
the Earth, Moon, Mars, Mercury and large asteroids are well-suited to
act as time-integrating CUDO detectors. There are several potential
candidates for CUDO structure such as strangelet fragments or more
generally dark matter if mechanisms exist for it to form compact
objects. [4pt]  B. J. Carr, K. Kohri, Y. Sendouda, & J.'i.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We study interactions of meteor-like compact ultra dense objects with nuclear
density or greater (CUDOs) with the Earth and other rocky bodies in the solar
system as a possible source of information about novel forms of matter. We
study the energy loss in CUDO puncture of the body and describe differences
between regular matter and CUDO impacts.
