when they say that CERN is looking at the early universe with their accelerator do they mean just a high temperature?

The video is great!!

Exactly Jheri. The particles are moving with a lot of kinetic energy. You can speak of the temperature of tin terms of energy.. In a gas temperature is closely related to the kinetic energy of the bits that make it up. So the early universe had enormous energy and thus was very hot.

It may seem strange but particle accelerators, looking at the smallest bits of matter, are windows into the early Universe.
