Researchers at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory are on a quest to solve one of physics’ biggest mysteries: What exactly is dark matter – the invisible substance that accounts for 85 percent of all the matter in the universe but can’t be seen even with our most advanced scientific instruments?

Symmetry: 2016 year in particle physics

Scientists furthered studies of the Higgs boson, neutrinos, dark matter, dark energy and cosmic inflation and continued the search for undiscovered particles, forces and principles.

Three Ways to Bust Ghostly Dark Matter

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.
