Lux Detector

Rick Gaitskell of Brown University is one member of a team of scientists and researchers attempting to strike particle physics gold. He is overseeing a massive operation. Actually, two massive operations: one above ground and one 4,850 feet below. Both working on the construction of the large underground xenon detector, or LUX Detector, which hopefully could detect for the first time ever, a dark matter particle. We are building what will be the most sensitive dark matter detector in the world. And therefore, there is every prospect of us—if there is a dark matter signal out there—of us seeing it.
