  • Scientists want to know how different constituents of the proton contribute to its spin, a fundamental property that affects the structure and properties of nearly all visible matter. The latest data from the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider reveal that the quark spin contribution (green puzzle piece)—specifically the contribution from a “sea” of antiquarks—is more complex than previously thought.
