Proof of Dark Matter May Lurk at Low-Energy Frontiers

Even after decades of searching, scientists have never seen a particle of dark matter. Evidence for the substance's existence is close to incontrovertible, but no one yet knows what it is made of. For decades physicists have hoped dark matter would prove to be heavy—consisting of so-called weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) that could be straightforwardly detected in the lab.
