A massive particle detector mounted on the International Space Station may have detected elusive dark matter at last, scientists announced Wednesday. Read more:

NASA will hold a press conference detailing the AMS science results at 1:30 p.m. EDT (1830 GMT) today. You can watch the AMS science results live on

And the positrons found by AMS increase in abundance from 10 GeV to 250 GeV, with the slope of the increase reducing by an order of magnitude over the range from 20 GeV to 250 GeV — just what scientists expect from positrons created by dark-matter annihilations.

Looks like this discovery actually agrees with some of the postulations and theories
