This, of course, is not the end of the story. The new LUX results place the Grand Sasso seasonal variations in some doubt. The cosmic ray positron rise could be coming from pulsars. Some other astrophysical phenomena could be producing the gamma rays and the synchrotron radiation haze coming from the galactic center. Several new dark matter searches are currently being mounted, and the ongoing experiments are being improved and are gathering more data. Watch this column in times to come for further results.
