Every nerd has long dreamed of having a secret, underground lair.
Sanford Laboratory scientists have one. Well, half of one, which is due to be completed by 2016. An awesome, Umbrella-Corporationesque lab dedicated to dark matter research is located 8000 feet underneath South Dakota mountains. Since any interfering radiation disrupts dark matter, scientists claim an underground lab is an ideal studying environment.
But we know the truth. They just want their own underground lair. ^_^
