Modern agricultural practices of monoculture farming, and intensive pesticide use are causing bee populations to disappear worldwide. Without bees to pollinate crops, the crops will disappear. By growing varied crops with no pesticides, we can keep Colony Collapse Disorder at bay.
DarkSide-50 is an experiment that is searching for particles of dark matter, which are thought to make up about 23 percent of the universe but have yet to be detected. The DarkSide-50 team is made up of faculty, students and researchers from dozens of institutions around the world, with lead scientists at Princeton University. The experiment is taking place at Italy's Gran Sasso National Laboratory, located underneath a mountain about 80 miles east of Rome.
