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.
Scientists, including researchers at SLAC, have only just begun to study the remarkably detailed map they created of a portion of the sky.
SLAC scientists find a new way to explain how a black hole’s plasma jets boost particles to the highest energies observed in the universe. The results could also prove useful for fusion and accelerator research on Earth.
Predicted by Einstein and discovered in 1979, gravitational lensing helps astrophysicists understand the evolving shape of the universe.
Astrophysicists use a catalog of extended gamma-ray sources spotted by Fermi spacecraft to home in on mysterious properties of deep space.
New technology could help future SuperCDMS SNOLAB experiment expand the search for light dark matter particles.
The LSST cryostat, now fully assembled, will keep the camera’s image sensors continuously cooled to minus 150 degrees Fahrenheit for crisp, high-sensitivity views of the night skies.
