The Tokai-to-Kamiokande (T2K) long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment in Japan started operation in 2010 and has been leading the field since then. In this colloquium I will present the latest results of the T2K experiment from a total beam exposure of 2.23e21 protons on target. In addition, a 27% increase in statistics was achieved through improvements to the event reconstruction at Super-Kamiokande (SK), the T2K far detector.

I will show how heavy asymmetric dark matter could be found using the locations of neutron star mergers in galaxies, and by observing a new type of astrophysical event, a "quiet kilonova," in which a neutron star implodes into a black hole made of dark matter accumulated at its center.
