MIT attempts to make its own dark matter

 We're pretty sure that it exists (whatever it is), because we've seen gravitational evidence for it. But since it's invisible, we're not at all sure what we're looking for. However, scientists believe that dark matter has certain features that can be observed, and hope to discover those with MIT’s DarkLight lab project.

The theory of dark matter is that it accounts for a huge portion of total mass in the Universe. Scientists began studying it after discovering discrepancies in the masses of things like galaxies, where there was a significant amount of mass that was unaccounted for.
