Submission + - 76 Signs of Dark Matter (bbc.co.uk)

physburn writes: "The BBC is reporting recent results from the Cresst dark matter search in Italy. Between 2009 and 2011, Cresst have seen 67 events, a 4 sigma detection of dark matter particles with a mass of either around 15 GeV or 25 GeV. The results are near those previous results from DAMA and Cogent. So has dark matter finally been found, and if so what is it?"
