The Dark between the Stars

What can the stars tell us about the universe’s missing matter? Why do researchers who study dark matter build their experiments as far from the stars as possible? 

Join Hugh Lippincott, spokesperson for the LUX-ZEPLIN dark matter experiment, as he discusses the hints stars give, the difficulty of completing a rare event search and how the LZ dark matter detector will break records as it takes data this year.
