After discovering the Higgs-Boson, scientists at CERN are turning their attention to finding dark matter.
The Large Hadron Collider will continue to run experiments until the end of this year after which it will be shut down for 20 months to undergo $1.82 billion of upgrades designed to increase its power by a factor of ten.
Scientists hope that the upgrades will allow them to use the atom smasher to create and detect dark matter, something that has never been accomplished before.
"It might have only just found the elusive ''God particle'', but the Large Hadron Collider at the CERN laboratory, near Geneva, is to have a $A1."
