Hunt For Dark Matter Not Over Yet

The hunt for dark matter continues.  That’s the word from researchers at the Sanford Lab.  It is home to the LUX experiment one of the on-going global efforts to directly detect dark matter.

While the initial three month run didn’t turn up any eureka moments–the knowledge gained in fine tuning and calibrating the experiment are proving valuable.   The findings help scientists hone the search.
