Is the secret to the universe hiding in Minnesota?

Is it possible that Minnesota is about to become famous for something other than a really big mall and pilots who forget to land their jet?

The science world is buzzing with rumors that deep below the crust in northern Minnesota, dark matter has been found. Dark matter is believed to make up 90 percent of the universe. The Cryogenic Dark Matter Search has been underway in the Soudan mine to try to figure out how the universe was (and is) created.

Science bloggers have seized upon a report that the discovery will be announced next week.

That gives you a few days to bone up on the subject.

    This is awesome – thanks for the info – can’t believe this has not garnered any comments when the TV shooting got 5! At least this is local! Not to say I understand it much at all, but it fascinating….
