In its final run, the LUX experiment increased its sensitivity four-fold, but dark matter remains elusive.
Computer models predict how the first clumps of matter formed – and what our universe's future holds.
A small-scale version of the future detector allows researchers and engineers to test, develop and troubleshoot various aspects of its technology.
Meet the world’s deepest underground physics facilities.
KIPAC researchers mourn the loss of the Hitomi spacecraft but are thrilled about the data it was still able to capture.
The discovery supports a powerful tool for discovering galaxies that are otherwise too distant to observe, and could lead to advances that improve our understanding of dark matter.
The center of our galaxy is a busy place. But it might be one of the best sites to hunt for dark matter.
It will provide new insights into the physics of black holes, the formation of chemical elements, stars and galaxies, and the evolution of the universe itself.
Dark matter hunters around the world pursue three approaches to look for fingerprints of ghostly WIMPs: on the Earth’s surface, underground and in space.
Analyzing the motion of X-ray sources could help researchers identify dark matter signals.
