Researchers at the Purple Mountain Observatory (PMO), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) recently released the latest discoveries made by the Dark Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE), which shows that high-energy particles in our universe may travel slower than what we think. With data collected by Wukong in the past six years, the researchers illustrated an energy spectrum of boron-to-carbon and boron-to-oxygen flux ratios, which show differences from theoretical calculations. The new discoveries and related data have been published on Science Bulletin, an English-language academic journal supervised by CAS.
