According to a team of scientists the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer mounted on ISS has been able to detect traces of ark matter which were never directly observed before. The team said that initial results from the cosmic ray detector indicate the existence of a strange and unknown matter and new physics phenomena.

Samuel Ting who is leading a team over at European particle physics laboratory near Geneva is of the opinion that more conclusive and definitive answers would be available in months to come. Excess of positrons – positively charged subatomic particles, have indicated the existence of such strange matter, possibly the dark matter.
