Breaking up: a convoluted drama at nuclear scale, too

(Springer) Regardless of the scenario, breaking up is dramatic. Take the case of carbon splitting into three nuclei of helium. Until now, physicists did not know whether the helium fragments were the object of a direct breakup in multiple fragments or were formed in a sequence of successive fragmentations. Scientists have used a detector measuring the precise disintegration of the 12C into three helium nuclei.
