In October 2010, the PHENIX Collaboration published its plan for future experimentation, detailing key physics questions for study at RHIC over the next decade. sPHENIX is a collaboration, detector, and experiment proposed to succeed the PHENIX experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). This detector enables a compelling physics program that will address fundamental unanswered questions about the nature of the strongly coupled Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP), discovered experimentally at RHIC to be a perfect fluid.
