Dancing in the Dark: BBC Documentary
BBC Documentary 2015 Dancing in the Dark The End of Physics
Scientists genuinely don't know what most of our universe is made of. The atoms we're made from only make up four per cent. The rest is dark matter and dark energy (for 'dark', read 'don't know'). The Large Hadron Collider at CERN has been upgraded. When it's switched on in March 2015, its collisions will have twice the energy they did before. The hope is that scientists will discover the identity of dark matter in the debris.Watch
Lighting the Way: A Conversation with 3 Dark Matter Explorers (Q+A)!
This month, three new experiments take significant steps in the hunt for dark matter, the elusive substance that appears to make up more than a quarter of the universe, but interacts very rarely with the matter that makes up our world. The experiments: the Axion Dark Matter eXperiment Gen 2, LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) and the Super Cryogenic Dark Matter Search at SNOLAB: learned in July that each..Read More

Two US federal funding agencies announced today which experiments they will support in the next generation of the search for dark matter.Read More
Physicist suggests new experiments could make or break axion as dark matter theory
For several years now, scientists have been hard at work trying to detect WIMPs, the thinking has been that if they can be detected, then it would go a long way towards proving that they are what makes up dark matter...Read More
Cleaning up after Einstein
Rosenberg has been on the trail of this particle ever since he was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Chicago in the early 1990s. In that time he has performed experiment after experiment, achieving ever greater precision and yet always the same old empty results, hoping for the positive detection that could rescue Albert Einstein's biggest-and most star-crossed-idea.Read More
