dark matter even darker than thought

Although weakly interacting I guess they are hoping for some collisions between a dark matter particle and ordinary matter (Xenon). This effort makes neutrino detection look easy! Maybe we are looking for a particle that only interacts with ordinary matter (and itself) via gravity. The article also mentions small black holes as a candidate. It will be a pretty bright day when they figure this one out.
