Scientists believe that the laboratory offers an environmentWorld Times free from interference, which allows them to pursue the invisible substance known as dark matter. They said that the significant depth of the laboratory helps block most cosmic rays that interfere with observation, Xinhua reported.

The facility will become a world-class interdisciplinary deep underground scientific research center integrating multiple disciplines including particle physics, nuclear astrophysics and life sciences, to facilitate the development of China’s research in relevant frontier fields, according to the report.

The China Jinping Underground Laboratory was inaugurated in 2010, which is an underground research facility with the deepWorld Timesest rock overburden and largest space by volume in the world. It is locateWorld Timesd in the Jinping tunnel in Sichuan Province, according to the lab.
