Has dark matter finally been found? ‘Big news coming soon’, say scientists

Has dark matter finally been found? 'Big news coming soon', say scientists 1

The mysterious substance has teased physicists for decades, challenging the very notions of the cosmos.
But now, with the help of a multi-billion-dollar tool, the American Association for the Advancement of Science has coyly teased they may have finally solved one of the biggest puzzles in the universe.
Exciting developments in the search for dark matter may be coming in a matter of weeks, the leader of a space-based particle physics experiment has said.

“We are so excited because we believe we are on the threshold of a major discovery,” said Michael Turner, director of the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics at the University of Chicago, at an annual conference.
“On the cosmology side we now understand that this mysterious dark matter holds together our galaxy and the rest of the universe,” said Turner.
The first paper of results from the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) – a $2billion particle collector mounted on the outside of the International Space Station – will be submitted to a scientific journal soon, MIT physicist Samuel Ting added.
