South Dakota Artists Explore Dark Matter

Jul 11, 2013

The Sanford Underground Lab in Lead typically brings scientists together to explain the elusive and mysterious microscopic neutrino. Into the Dark: Artists Exploring Dark Matter is an art exhibit showing the interpretation of dark matter by artists from across the state.

The miles of deep underground tunnels beneath the town of Lead are slowly transitioning from a gold- mining operation into a first-class science research lab. Scientists at the lab are hoping to get to know dark matter a little better. What does it look like? What does it feel like?
