Long-Standing Dark Matter Detection Claim Takes a Hit

Amid all the null results in the quest to directly detect dark matter, one research group has unwaveringly claimed success. Since 1997, researchers with the DAMA experiment in Italy have contended that their crystals of ultrapure sodium iodide are detecting particles that fit the profile of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs), a leading dark-matter candidate.
