The answer has to do with dark matter’s role in shaping the cosmos.
Back when it was theorized, scientists weren’t sure they would ever detect the neutrino; now they’re searching for a version of the particle that could be even more elusive.
Fast electronics and artificial intelligence are helping physicists capture data and decide what to keep and what to throw away.
Fermilab scientists are developing one of the most cold-tolerant robots ever made so they can monitor the interiors of particle detectors.
In Drift: Art and Dark Matter, pieces by four artists-in-residence dig deep into the underground laboratory.
The question may seem simple, but physicists don’t yet know the answer. New measurements aim to change that.
Sanford Underground Research Facility is making an effort to build bridges with Native American communities and operate with respect for the sacred land it is built on.
Read the travelogue of a xenon atom as it journeys from the air we breathe to a dark-matter detector a mile underground.
Learn about the Standard Model of particle physics and how physicists use it to predict the (subatomic) future.
