Submission + - LUX experiment rules out low mass dark matter

thegreatemu writes: The LUX collaboration today released the first results using their huge liquid xenon detector to search for dark matter interactions in a live webcast from South Dakota's Sanford Lab. (Here's a copy of the talk and the corresponding paper (warning: PDFs)).
Their conclusion: they see no positive evidence for any kind of dark matter. Moreover, they have pretty conclusively (by a factor of 20!) ruled out conventional dark matter as a source of the low energy signals seen by many of their dark matter competitors (CDMS, CoGeNT, CRESST, and DAMA).
