Particle Mysteries: The Coldest Case

Show Description:

There is something enormous scattered throughout the universe—so, what could it be? Scientists are dissecting the underlying clues of dark matter and discovering that their investigation is becoming increasingly complex. Explore how the study of the smallest particles intersects with our understanding of the largest bodies in the universe. Strap on your helmet, as we need to go underground for this journey.

On this episode of The Coldest Case, we follow our hosts underground as they visit scientists conducting experiments in the search for Dark Matter. Explore how the study of the smallest particles intersects with our understanding of the largest bodies of the universe.

Thanks to this episode's interviewees for taking the time to share their expertise with us.

Show Description:

The Coldest Case: The nature of matter in our universe has left scientists puzzled for decades. There seems to be more than meets the eye – significantly more. Open the file on the coldest case: dark matter, the mysterious intergalactic phenomenon that leaves visible traces yet itself can’t be seen. Learn how researchers around the world are pushing the limits of science in their search for understanding. Dark matter seems to be all around us, dropping clues while still evading detection. Laboratories worldwide host experiments that use cutting-edge science and develop new technologies in an attempt to uncover new leads that may help to solve this particle mystery.
