British scientists equipped with state of the art detectors deep underground in northern England have begun a search for one of the most tantalising secrets of the universe - known as Dark Matter.
Teams of scientists around the world are racing to be the first to discover the truth about Dark Matter, which cannot be seen because it does not emit light. They believe it makes up the vast majority of the universe.
Scientists say stars account for less than one percent of the mass of the universe, with gas clouds and other objects accounting for close to another five percent.
The missing remainder has been dubbed Dark Matter.
In a bid to identify the prime suspect known as Weakly Interacting Massive Particles or Wimps, British scientists have installed highly sensitive detectors 1 100m down a salt mine at Boulby on the North Yorkshire moors.
They are buried deep underground in an area of low natural radioactivity where intervening rock should shield them from interference and filter out cosmic bombardment.
The detectors are designed to detect tiny collisions between Wimps and the nuclei of atoms. - Reuters
