Learn more about STAR

The STAR Experiment at Brookhaven National Laboratory is one of the premier particle detectors in the world. Using this device, an international collaboration of more than 400 physicists and skilled specialists is working hard to understand the nature of the early universe and the tiniest building blocks of matter through the study of nuclear collisions at the highest energies achieved in the laboratory.

On these pages, you can learn more about STAR and its broad physics program, the various detectors (with more being added!) that make up the experiment, and the scientists that make it all work.
