Dark matter makes up roughly 80 percent of all the matter in the universe. Yet, we still don't know what, exactly, it is. But if we closely observe the universe, we can see its effects—on the velocities of galaxies and through gravitational lensing, among other things. "See the unseen" in this week's Deep Thoughts.

Sanford Lab follows integrated safety management principles to support the design, construction and operation of the entire facility. Although we rely on many organizations to help us continually improve our best-practices safety program, we know that our most important asset is people. http://buff.ly/2kjHvrH

What does neutrino oscillation have to do with the origins of the universe? Perhaps a great deal.

Building world-leading research facilities deep underground in a former gold mine requires expertise in legacy infrastructure, ground conditions, ventilation systems, water inflow controls and mine engineering. Bryce Pietzyk, underground access director at Sanford Lab, will discuss underground maintenance projects that are critical to the success of current and future experiments in “Underground access: Mining meets science.”

Reception at 5 pm, talk at 6 pm.
Co-sponsors: Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center, Crow Peak Brewing Company, Lodge at Deadwood.

Deep Talks: From LUX to LZ: More than scaling up.

In his presentation, Dr. Markus Horn, research scientist at Sanford Lab and a researcher with the LUX and LZ experiments, talks about the decommissioning of the Large Underground Xenon dark matter experiment and preparation for the much larger LUX-ZEPLIN experiment. How will this affect the search for dark matter? Join at the Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center in Lead, SD, to find out. The event is Thursday, Jan. 12. It opens with a social at 5 pm; the talk begins at 6 pm.
