Down-to-earth searches for cosmological dark matter with LUX and LZ
Abstract: Can we detect the Milky Way's dark matter halo in a laboratory experiment? If so, it would be a spectacular confirmation of modern cosmology, and would rewrite the standard model of particle physics. This talk will review where the dark matter direct detection campaign stands, and what may lie ahead, with emphasis on the LUX and LZ experiments.
