SLAC’s team of dark matter hunters recently gained a new member. Astrophysicist Kimberly Palladino joined the lab in October 2014 to develop a test facility for the future LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) detector, which will be the largest and most sensitive dark matter detector of its kind.
After more than six years of grinding and polishing, the first-ever dual-surface mirror for a major telescope is complete.
Astrophysicists inspire space-related projects at a 24-hour hack-a-thon in San Francisco.
A possible sign of dark matter will eventually become clear, according to promising signs from the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer experiment.
