The hunt for dark matter

Brandeis scientists are searching for one of the universe's greatest mysteries

In 2015, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN — the world’s largest science experiment — will reboot after two years of upgrades, with double the energy of its first run. The Brandeis High Energy Physics Group will be in the thick of it, exploring the newly discovered Higgs boson and hunting for supersymmetry, dark matter and extra dimensions. 

Dark matter is especially intriguing to physics professor Gabriella Sciolla and her lab. Invisible to observation, dark matter has eluded scientists for years. Now, they may know how to find it. Watch the video to see how.
