For more than a decade, Texas A&M University high energy physicist Rupak Mahapatra has been making the devices that make detection of the particles believed to be behind dark matter and therefore nearly a quarter of the universe possible. Mahapatra is working closely with high energy physicist Mirabolfathi to develop next generation detectors that could make dramatic improvements in such detection technologies.

"We used the most powerful telescope in the world, but we still needed to stare at this galaxy for more than two nights to reveal its remarkable nature. By collecting enough light to measure this galaxy's spectrum, we can decipher the cosmic narrative of what stars and elements are present in these galaxies and construct a timeline of when they formed their stars." - Dr. Kim-Vy Tran, Texas A&M astronomer
