"Cosmic Rays as Probes of the High-Energy Universe."
Erin Boettcher, UW-Madison Astronomy Dept.
The highly energetic particles known as cosmic rays carry a wealth of information about the high-energy universe. What are they? Where do they come from? What can they tell us about the high-energy universe? We'll also learn about current theories of how they are accelerated to their extreme energies.
