I will first introduce the concept of dark matter particles which interact with nuclear matter via strong interactions, rather than the traditional weakly-interacting massive particle. I show that these particles are difficult to constrain with standard direct detection experiments, and that a recent surface run of the CRESST experiment can place new constraints on the properties of this SIMP dark matter. I also discuss neutrino astronomy in the context of solar and supernova neutrinos, and show that neutrinos can be used to probe the core of the sun, and the birth of black holes.
