Scientists are facing one of the most staggering puzzles in the history of science and human knowledge. We can’t account for 95% of the universe!
In the largest facilities in the world – the Large Hadron Collider or LHC at CERN in Geneva, a laboratory under the Alps at Modane, and in the United States and elsewhere – researchers investigate the famous “dark matter” and the “dark energy” that is needed to explain the universe. The dark matter may be a new family of particles related to known matter by a special sort of symmetry predicted by theorists called Super-symmetry. But can physicists find these particles?
