A Look Inside the Darkside50 Experiment

This three minute video gives you an inside look at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory and the Darkside50 experiment, an experiment searching for dark matter.


Beneath a mountain, an experiment is about to begin that could prove the existence of some of the strangest particles known to science.

Physicists are hoping to find the first evidence of dark matter – a hidden substance that is thought to pervade the Earth and the Universe.

BBC World Service science reporter Rebecca Morelle has been to Italy to take a look inside the Darkside50 experiment at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory before it is switched on.
