Dark matter may have been "felt" for the first time deep in a Minnesota mine,

tripped recently by what might be weakly interacting massive particles, or
WIMPs.

"If WIMP detections are confirmed by other experiments, then scientists will likely want to know where the particles are coming from.."

[ If the unknown state cannot be found out=97as is indeed the case for isolated quantum systems=97then one can make a persuasive case that such states are subjective, and that quantum state vectors are merely records of the observer=92s knowledge about the state of a fragment of the Universe (Fuchs and Peres 2000). ]
