Direction-sensitive direct dark matter search; NEWAGE (15'+5')
NEWAGE is a project of direction-sensitive direct dark matter search 
We developed a three-dimensional gaseous tracking device with an effective 
volume of
23x28x30 cm^3,
performed a direction-sensitive dark matter search in a surface laboratory.
By using 150 Torr carbon-tetrafluoride (CF4gas),
we obtained a sky map drawn with the recoil directions of the carbon and 
fluorine nuclei,
and set the first limit 
on the spin-dependent WIMP (Weakly Interacting Massive Particles)-proton 
section by a direction-sensitive method.
As a next step, we started an underground measurement in Kamioka 
located at 2700m w.e. underground. 
In this presentation  I will report the result and the status of NEWAGE.
