Fiat Lux: The Search for Dark Matter

Researchers at the Sanford Underground Laboratory are conducting the LUX experiment to search for dark matter in the deepest underground clean room facility in the US at 4,850 feet. Physicists seek to build more and more sensitive instruments in an effort to measure and document neutrinos and dark matter.

Raw Science launched its video-on-demand platform on the anniversary of the week the Large Hadron Collider at CERN went live in 2008, when a group of dedicated people successfully turned on a machine designed to answer some of the greatest unsolved questions in science. To commemorate this monumental achievement, Raw Science offers Particle Fever, the acclaimed documentary about the search for the ‘God Particle’, as its first VOD title. To learn more about particle physics and the Higgs Boson, the film can be rented here.
