Scientists don’t yet know what dark matter is made of, but they are full of ideas.
Scientists have inaugurated the new XENON1T experiment at Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy.
New technology and new thinking are pushing the dark matter hunt to lower and lower masses.
Not only are we made of fundamental particles, we also produce them and are constantly bombarded by them throughout the day.
It’s in the air we breathe, but it’s not so easy to get ahold of 10 metric tons of xenon in its liquid form.
Dark matter experiments are becoming so sensitive, even the ghostliest of particles will soon get in the way.
The MiniCLEAN dark matter experiment prepares for its debut.
XMASS is the latest of multiple experiments to contradict a previous dark matter discovery claim, but the conversation isn't over yet.
