Punk Rock Physics Experiment Is Hunting for a Dark Matter Particle Named After Laundry Detergent Punk Rock Physics Experiment Is Hunting for a Dark Matter Particle Named After Laundry Detergent

FERNEY-VOLTAIRE, FRANCE— Some particle physics experiments are easier to ride than others. The giant detectors that take pictures of particle collisions on miles-round rings don’t really have anywhere to sit, and the intense bureaucracy would probably demand an unwieldy amount of paperwork for would-be riders. The…

Curious Signal Could Be Dark Matter Pouring From The Sun's Core Curious Signal Could Be Dark Matter Pouring From The Sun's Core

This could be historic: Astronomers from Leicester University have detected a strange signal in the X-ray spectrum that appears to be a signature of 'axions' — a hypothetical dark matter particle. It could take years to confirm, but this may be the first direct detection and identification of dark matter.
