Physics of the Dark Universe is an online-only, fully open access journal. The journal offers rapid publication of peer-reviewed, original research articles considered of high scientific impact. The journal is focused on the understanding of the nature of Dark Matter and Dark Energy and covers all theoretical, experimental and phenomenological aspects of both Dark Matter and Dark Energy.
The Nobel Prize in Physics 2014 was awarded jointly on October 7 to Isamu Akasaki, Meijo University, Nagoya, Japan and Nagoya University, Japan; Hiroshi Amano, Nagoya University, Japan; and Shuji Nakamura, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA "for the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources".

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), founded 60 years ago by Niels Bohr and other European visionaries, has revolutionized our understanding of the universe. With over 10,000 scientists from more than 100 countries working together to unravel the mysteries of dark matter, the early universe, and antimatter through the utilization of the world’s most advanced accelerators, decelerators, and detectors, CERN is an unprecedented experiment in scientific cooperation. The History of CERN, an interactive graphic, can be found here along with various activities with Accelerators, Experiments, Physics, Computing, and Engineering.
The Particle Adventure is an award-winning site from the Particle Data Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory abounds with information on particle physics. Featuring interactive tours of quarks, neutrinos, antimatter, extra dimensions, dark matter, accelerators, and particle detectors, the content can be read in 16 languages, including Chinese, Norwegian, and Czech. From the homepage, navigate to one of five main categories - The Standard Model, Higgs Boson, Accelerators and Particle Detectors, Exploring Unsolved Mysteries, and Particle Decays and Annihilations. Within each of the five categories, scroll through interactive slide shows to beef up your knowledge of everything subatomic.
