"This is the longest lifetime that we have ever directly measured," said Luca Grandi, KICP senior member and co-author of the study. "Its detection was possible only thanks to the tremendous effort that the collaboration put into making XENON1T an ultra-low background detector. This made the detector ideal for rare event searches such as the detection of dark matter - for which it was designed - as well as other elusive processes."
