Dark matter has been a mystery to physicists for decades. The fact that we haven't seen it means that it must interact with with normal matter so rarely that it has no effect on the Earth. By building detectors deep underground it is possible to look for the tiny traces of energy that dark matter might release when one of these rare events occurs. Thomas Edwards investigates how we can be sure that a detector will be sensitive enough to find the evidence we need to claim we truly have seen dark matter.
