    Off-center collisions of gold ions create a strong magnetic field and set up a series of effects that push positively charged particles to the poles of the football-shaped collision zone and negatively charged particles to the "equator." This charge separation is evidence for the existence of a "chiral magnetic wave" formed in the quark-gluon plasma created at RHIC.
