India Opens New Lab To Hunt For Dark Matter

NEW DELHI—Ever since a pioneering underground laboratory in India closed 25 years ago, physicists here have lacked a subterranean lair, shielded from cosmic rays, where they could hunt for elusive particles from the cosmos. Now, their long wait is over: On 2 September, India will inaugurate Jaduguda Underground Science Laboratory 550 meters below the surface in an operating uranium mine. Elsewhere the dark matter quest has driven physicists to build ever-deeper labs—Sudbury Neutrino Observatory in Canada, 2.1 kilometers below the surface, is now the deepest—with ever-more-elaborate measures to shield detectors from other particles.
