Maria Elena Monzani prepares an international team to search for clues to one of the biggest scientific mysteries.

Light dark matter is a thousand times less likely to bump into regular matter than previous astrophysical analyses allowed
A SLAC/Stanford study of the population of satellite galaxies orbiting the Milky Way provides new clues about the particle nature of dark matter.
With some Stanford-led upgrades, the gravitational wave detector LIGO is back online after a year of work. It’s now more sensitive than ever to spacetime ripples and will be joined by other detectors around the world.
Stanford has played a leading role in compiling Fermi’s gamma-ray bursts catalogs ever since the space observatory launched nearly 11 years ago
Four large meshes made from 2 miles of metal wire will extract potential signals of dark matter particles
A miniature camera for the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope will help test the observatory and take first images
SLAC completed its work on ComCam, a commissioning device to be installed in Chile later this year.
Over the past four years, an instrument a
The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope will manage unprecedented volumes of data produced each night.
SLAC scientists find a new way to explain how a black hole’s plasma jets boost particles to the highest energies observed in the universe. The results could also prove useful for fusion and accelerator research on Earth.
