Some of the most recent results from the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) are reported. Exciting new experimental features have been observed in data from all four experiments. These new observations indicate the creation of a new form of ‘hot dense matter’ at RHIC energies, the properties of which are now beginning to be determined.
