The hunt for dark matter

Astrophysicist Dan Bauer looks for dark matter in a lab half a mile below the plains of Minnesota. This unusual location shields his equipment from other particles that might interfere with his search for dark matter particles, which are predicted to pass straight through the Earth. If this is correct, Bauer may be able to detect and verify the existence of this mysterious form of matter.
