Dark matter detected in the lab?

I’m not really one for pubs, and I felt intimidated to the point of wanting to hide under a chair at a skeptical meetup on Saturday, but tonight’s Skeptics in the Pub could be quite exciting. Phil Plait‘s the guest speaker, and he just posted news of something which might, just might, be a direct, laboratory detection of dark matter. Even if not, it’s something new and unexplained. Coooooooool.
