The states of matter at extremely high temperatures and densities, and hence with extraordinarily high energy densities, have always attracted researchers, owing to the possibility of reaching record parameters, advancing to new domains of the phase diagram, and producing in the laboratory the exotic states that gave birth to our universe through the big bang and which now account for the great bulk (90–95%) of the mass of baryon (visible) matter – in stellar and interstellar objects, planets, and exoplanets [25, 14, 11, 16, 33, 19, 18, 40, 10, 39].
