'World's Most Sensitive Dark Promising Results
Matter Detector' Delivers First
Dark matter, doesn't
emit any light. It doesn't transmit any information. In essence, think of dark matter as transparent.
But despite its evasiveness,
we know dark matter is out there. It does seem to interact with the matter we know and see with our own eyes
Scientists call whatever
extra stuff is pushing the universe apart dark energy, and items anchoring galaxies in place are called dark matter.
These mysterious phenomena
are estimated to make up a whopping 95% of matter in the universe. And LZ is on a mission to find some of it.

looking for a specific type of theoretical particle called a "weakly interacting massive particle." (WIMP)
The plan is basically
to see whether it's possible to catch a WIMP in action, as it interacts with a xenon atom to found dark matter
