Scientists are using atomic clocks to investigate some of the universe’s greatest mysteries, including the nature of dark matter, in a laboratory. In the process, they say they’re bringing cosmology and astrophysics “down to Earth.”

The project, which is a collaboration between the University of Sussex and the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) in the U.K., uses the ticks of these incredibly precise clocks to hunt for hitherto unknown ultra-light particles.
