A new experiment known as DarkSide-50 is searching for elusive particles of dark matter, which is thought to make up nearly a quarter of the universe. Finding it, researchers say, will solidify our understanding of how the universe formed and shed light on its ultimate fate.

The study provides a method for conservation planners trying to anticipate how agriculture will be affected by such adaptations. Read more at our research blog, Princeton Journal Watch.
