Is there a link between dark matter and supersymmetry? I know that dark matter makes up a lot of the known universe but no one understands what it is. I also know that with supersymmetry each particle has a sparticle which is thousands of times heavier (however i dont know why) and that no sparticles have been detected yet, which is why CERN is making their super-powerful particle accelerator (sorry Fermilab)....well CERN are making it for a number of reasons really.. Anyway i digress...SO, neither have been detected, there is a lot of unexplained mass in space, so why couldnt this dark matter be sparticles?? Also, does that mean anti-matter has anti-sparticles?
