Dark Matter Rises from Dark Horse

Scientists are fighting to learn what they can from the large hadron collider. Among the results hopes to be discerned from the super technical physics research is the discovery of dark matter. Dark Horse has a quicker route to discovering the matter in Dark Matter #1.
