Paper: “Direct Detection of Dark Energy”

A team of physicists working in Italy on an experiment designed to detect dark matter, obtained data that suggest that they instead detected dark energy, something that is theorized, but has never yet been detected experimentally. This team discovered energy in excess of expected normal background gravitational interactions, and suspect that this excess is actually […]
