Meteor detection technique could be used to find dark matter particles entering the atmosphere

Researchers at Ohio State University have developed a new method for detecting dark matter, based on existing meteor detection technology. By using ground-based radar to look for ionization trails, similar to those produced by meteors as they pass through the air, they hope to use Earth’s atmosphere as a detector for large particles. The results …
