+ - Space station's antimatter detector finds its first evidence of dark matter->

Submitted by mknewman
mknewman (557587) writes "Scientists say a $2 billion antimatter-hunting experiment on the International Space Station has detected its first hints of dark matter, the mysterious stuff that makes up almost a quarter of the universe.

The evidence from the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, revealed Wednesday at Europe's CERN particle physics lab, is based on an excess in the cosmic production of anti-electrons, also known as positrons. The AMS research team can't yet completely rule out other explanations for the bump, but the fresh findings provide the best clues yet as to the nature of dark matter."
