Scientists Find A Hint Of Dark Matter

GENEVA (April 3, 2013)--A $2 billion experiment on the International Space Station may be on the verge of explaining the dark matter that helps hold the cosmos together.

An international team of scientists said Wednesday the cosmic ray detector has found the first hint of dark matter, which has never yet been directly observed.

The team said its first results from the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, flown into space two years ago, show evidence of a new physics phenomena that could be the strange and unknown matter.

Nobel-winning physicist Samuel Ting, who leads the team at the European particle physics laboratory near Geneva, said he expects a more conclusive answer within months.
