Results from the Final 5-tower run of CDMS at the Soudan Mine in Northern Minnesota
Results from the Final Exposure of the CDMS II Experiment
Physicists added up all of the ordinary matter in the Milky Way
and discovered that there isn't enough to keep it together!
There must be something massive that we can't see...DARK MATTER!

Conducted from the Soudan Underground Mine in northern Minnesota, the search is for postulated dark matter particles called WIMPS -- weakly interacting massive particles. So far, the experiment has found no WIMPS, but neither has it found contamination from stray neutrons. This is good news because it establishes the degree of background rejection that has been achieved. Hopefully, the next run will reveal the elusive dark matter particle.
