Nothing dark about this matter

Education Minister Dan Tehan wants it known that the Australian Research Council’s dark matter research centre could be looking for whatever it might be next year

Excavation is complete for the necessary lab in an old goldmine at Stawell.

Yes, that Stawell, the town in Mr Tehan’s electorate of Wannon. No, the project is not pork pitched to the dark matter vote in the electorate.

This high-science research was funded long before Mr Tehan became minister and before the town was redistributed into his seat.
