Deep Space Chamber

Bill Malphurs in Deep Space ChamberProf. Guido Mueller received shipment of a Deep Space Environment Simulation Chamber which is currently under construction in his lab. However, the chamber (received from MIT) was too large to fit into the lab. To make this work, Bill Malphurs, is currently cutting the chamber down, in order to fit another top on to the lower section. Bill will be welding the pieces together.

XENON : Dark Matter

XENON is a new experiment to look for dark matter particles in the halo of our galaxy. It will operate a 1 tonne dual-phase time projection chamber (TPC) filled with liquid xenon in the Gran Sasso Underground Laboratory in Italy, which provides sufficient shielding for interactions caused by cosmic rays.
