Dark Matters at Purdue Unravelling a Cosmic Secret
Most of the matter in the Universe is made of an entirely unknown substance called Dark Matter. While its existence has been established by versatile cosmological and astrophysical observations, the actual nature of Dark Matter is still a mystery. We are working on experiments to detect Dark Matter particles in order to unravel this cosmic secret.
Neutrinos are elusive messengers from the core of our Sun and from Galactic supernova explosions. Our experiments are sensitive to their feeble interactions and allow us to study how our Sun produces its energy, and how a dying star explodes.
