A Strangelet is a subatomic particle composed entirely of strange matter. Usually, these objects are only femtometers across, but they have been known to reach sizes of several meters across.


Strangelets are usually created synthetically, however, they can naturally occur upon the collision of two neutron stars, or accidentally when a ship carrying strange matter explodes.


Strangelets are very dangerous because they can convert normal matter into strange matter when they collide with something.
