All efforts to directly detect new fundamental particles have so far failed.

Does this mean that we are really facing a nightmare scenario? The short answer - in my view is not yet. In this colloquium I will discuss a complementary approach to directly observing new particles: indirect detection.

I will focus on the role that lattice quantum chromodynamics (QCD), the numerical computation of processes that are mediated by the strong force, plays in the search for new physics and discuss recent advances in this area of lattice QCD.
