    First test of the interaction of dark matter with pions

    Over 80% of the matter content of the universe is made of dark matter. In order to unravel its nature, direct-detection experiments look for the scattering of dark matter particles off atomic nuclei.

    Neutron star mergers will resolve tension in Universe's expansion rate measurement

    There are numerous ways to measure the expansion rate of our Universe, otherwise known as the Hubble constant, and right now even the most trusted methods don't agree. This is causing some scientists to argue that there are problems with the standard cosmological model. In the next ten years, neutron star mergers will be able to solve the problem.

    A new eye on the changing heavens

    OKC researchers will be at the heart of the groundbreaking Large Synoptic Survey Telescope project thanks to a generous research project grant from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg (KAW) Foundation.
