'Deep Underground Science at Boulby Mine: The search for DARK MATTER and beyond...' by Dr Sean Paling, research associate at the University of Sheffield and the manager and science coordinator for the Boulby Underground Science facility. Boulby Mine is Britain’s deepest mine, near Whitby and on the edge of the North Yorkshire moors.
Astronomers are convinced there is much more out in space than meets the eye. As well as the stars and galaxies we can see on a clear night, observations suggest there is much more matter out there that we cannot see. This is known as dark matter - the missing mass in the universe - and the race is on to find out exactly what it is.
