Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (CDMS)
Dark matter experiments are becoming so sensitive, even the ghostliest of particles will soon get in the way.
The Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel’s recommendations will set the course for the future of particle physics in the United States.
Physicists operating an experiment located half a mile underground in Minnesota reported this weekend that they have found possible hints of dark-matter particles.
The search for dark matter runs deep with physicists Blas Cabrera and Bernard Sadoulet, who have chased this mystery far underground and will be recognized for their work as joint recipients of the 2013 W.K.H. Panofsky Prize in Experimental Particle Physics. The prize is named for SLAC's founding director, Wolfgang "Pief" Panofsky, and awarded by the American Physical Society.
