The far-from equilibrium dynamics of generic disordered systems is expected to show thermalization, but this process is yet not well understood and shows a rich phenomenology ranging from anomalously slow relaxation to the breakdown of thermalization. While this problem is notoriously difficult to study numerically, we can experimentally probe the relaxation dynamics in an isolated spin system realized by a frozen gas of Rydberg atoms. By breaking the symmetry of the Hamiltonian with an external field, we can identify characteristics of the long time magnetization, including a non-analytic behavior at zero field. These can be understood from mean field, perturbative, and spectral arguments. The emergence of these distinctive features allows to falsify whether the experiment satisfies Eigenstate Thermalization Hypothesis (ETH).
