Maria Elena Monzani prepares an international team to search for clues to one of the biggest scientific mysteries.
SLAC/Stanford study of the population of satellite galaxies orbiting the Milky Way provides new clues about the particle nature of dark matter.
Four large meshes woven from 2 miles of metal wire will extract potential signs of dark matter particles.
SLAC completed its work on ComCam, a commissioning device to be installed in Chile later this year.
Building the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope also means solving extraordinary technological challenges.
In the decade since LCLS produced its first light, it has pushed boundaries in countless areas of discovery.
The LSST camera integration and testing team inserted a raft of nine imaging sensors into the body of the ComCam. This miniature version of the LSST camera will be used for telescope commissioning. Check out photos of this and other recent activity from the LSST camera clean room.
SLAC Director Chi-Chang Kao spoke to the Stanford University Faculty Senate at its Feb. 21 meeting.
The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope will track billions of objects for 10 years, creating unprecedented opportunities for studies of cosmic mysteries.
Scientists, including researchers at SLAC, have only just begun to study the remarkably detailed map they created of a portion of the sky.
