An initiative spearheaded by a team of SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC) researchers seeks to produce a highly sensitive detector of dark matter particles.
U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry made his final stop on his tour of national laboratories in the Bay Area at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory on Mar. 28, when he delivered a motivational speech to its employees. Perry praised their cutting-edge scientific research and expressed support for finding economically feasible solutions to energy challenges.
This system proposed by physicists, if proven effective, would not only reduce the cost of detecting neutrinos but also deepen our understanding of elementary particle physics.
