A new paper outlines a method to directly detect particles from the 'dark world' using the Large Hadron Collider. Until now we've only been able to make indirect measurements and simulations, such as the visualization of dark matter above.

Scientists discovered a way to trap mysterious dark matter

It is a complete mystery. But it is an important mystery. It turns out that roughly 68% of the universe is dark energy. Dark...
Study disproves Hawking, shows tiny black holes may not account for Dark Matter

Study disproves Hawking, shows tiny black holes may not account for Dark Matter

An international research team including Dr Surhud More and Dr Anupreeta More from Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA), Pune has ruled out...

New studies confirm existence of galaxies with almost no dark matter

A Yale-led team of researchers is doubling down on its earlier finding of a galaxy with almost no dark matter. In 2018, the researchers published...

Dark matter experiment finds no evidence of axions

One of the mysteries of our universe is that of dark energy and matter. Scientists all over the world are attempting to discover what...
Fresh data deepen mystery of dark-matter signal

Fresh data deepen mystery of dark-matter signal

Dark matter is thought to compromise 85% of the material Universe. For 20 years, an experiment in Italy known as DAMA has detected an...
This computer drawing shows the FASER instrument in a tunnel at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland. The detector will be precisely aligned with the collision axis in the ATLAS instrument 480 meters away. FASER will track and measure the decay of particles produced.FASER/CERN

FASER detector at the LHC to explore clues about hidden matter in the universe

On March 5, the research board at the CERN has approved a new experiment at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, to search for...
Missing dark matter from the early universe found by astronomers

Missing dark matter from the early universe found by astronomers

For close on a century, researchers have estimated that the universe contains more matter than can be directly observed known as dark matter. They...

Our universe may be sitting on a bubble within an extra dimension

We know that our universe is expanding at an accelerating rate, but what causes this growth remains a mystery. The most likely explanation is...
Abell S1063, a galaxy cluster, was observed by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope as part of the Frontier Fields programme. The huge mass of the cluster — containing both baryonic matter and dark matter — acts as cosmic magnification glass and deforms objects behind it. In the past astronomers used this gravitational lensing effect to calculate the distribution of dark matter in galaxy clusters. A more accurate and faster way, however, is to study the intracluster light (visible in blue), which follows the distribution of dark matter. Credit: NASA, ESA, and M.

Faint starlight in Hubble images reveals distribution of dark matter

Astronomers using data from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have employed a revolutionary method to detect dark matter in galaxy clusters. The method allows...
