$1.5 billion Dark Matter Detector AMS is on ISS – Not Underground

Dark Matter Experiment Has Detected Nothing, Researchers Say Proudly, NY Times “LUX is the latest in a long series of ever-larger experiments that have occupied and taunted the world’s physicists over the last few years. They are all in abandoned mines or other underground places to shield them from cosmic rays, which could cause false alarms. … Larger instruments are already on the drawing boards of LUX and other collaborations, […]

AMS Has Found Something

AMS-02: Shining light on elusive dark matter, ESA “The findings hint at a new phenomenon but it is unknown whether the positron ratio comes from dark energy particles colliding with each other or from pulsating stars in our galaxy that produce antimatter.” First Result from the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on the International Space Station: Precision Measurement of the Positron Fraction in Primary Cosmic Rays of 0.5-350 GeV, Physical Review Letters […]

Software and Hardware Glitches on Fermi?

Space telescope to get software fix, Nature “Long-standing but little-publicized software problems, and insufficient memory in one of the detectors, have clouded the vision of the world’s leading -ray telescope to the highest-energy -rays. The flaws do not seriously threaten the satellite’s observations at low energies. But they have hampered studies at energies greater than 10 billion electronvolts (GeV), which could yield clues to dark matter and the powerful stellar […]
