ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has been running successfully for more than two years, recording both pp and Pb–Pb data. The analysis of these data samples revealed intriguing properties of the produced matter. They indicate that the system created in heavy–ion collisions, is larger, hotter and denser compared to the one created at lower energies. In this article, I review the latest experimental results from ALICE from both the 2010 and the 2011 run.
