Mapping Radiation Patterns

Imaging technologies enable detection of frequencies far beyond the visible range of the electromagnetic spectrum. These have radically extended human perception, allowing us to peer deep into our cosmic environment. This photograph of the cosmic microwave background, or CMB, visualizes our primeval origins, what is believed to be radiation shortly after the birth of the universe. It’s a cosmic baby picture, whose patterns represent slight energetic variations that eventually gave rise to quasars, galaxies, stars, planets, and us.

This image appears spherical because it’s a panorama of humanity’s cosmic horizon, taken from the Planck satellite. Because of the limited speed

Antarcticas Super-TIGER is top cat

NASA’s cosmic ray-hunting science balloon, the Super Trans-Iron Galactic Element Recorder (Super-TIGER), has smashed records for the longest flight by a balloon of its size and the longest flight of any heavy-lift scientific balloon during a flight over Antarctica, where it detected 50 million cosmic rays.

At a height of 38,000m (127,000ft), Super-TIGER was carried by the south polar winds for a lengthy 55 days, 1 hour and 34 minutes, breaking its own record of 46 days for the title of the longest flight by a balloon of its size. On board was a new instrument which, when bombarded by

In the Physics Institute. PN Lebedev Physical Institute (LPI) proposed a new explanation for the origin of cosmic rays. Opened last year, the U.S. Fermi gamma-ray observatory giant bubbles, symmetrically placed above and below the galactic plane in the central part may be a relic of the active phase of the galactic center, which is a massive black hole. Millions of years ago the jet (jets of material) pumped up the energy of these areas. He

The space probe was released for the first time in the history of the solar system

21.03.2013

NASA interplanetary probe "Voyager 1", launched 35 years ago, crossed the border into the heliosphere and became the first man-made object, left the solar system, U.S. researchers write in a paper accepted for publication in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

"It seems that the" Voyager 1 "left the region, which is dependent on exposure to the sun, the data show such characteristics of hydrogen and helium, which are expected to be observed in the interstellar medium" — written by Bill Webber of the University of New Mexico and his colleagues.

The boundary of

Large meteorite struck in Tunisia

September 18, 2013. As reported by Diamond FM Radio, September 15, a large meteorite fell to the ground in the south of Tunisia in the desert and uninhabited area. During the fall recorded three loud explosions. This was also said the publication "Digital Tunisia. "

In place of the profit units of the National Guard and military intelligence for a preliminary examination of the meteorite.

"The residents of the nearby places that have witnessed the phenomenon and feared the worst, given the scale explosions calmed down after the arrival of the military and the National Guard. The details of what

High-energy cosmic rays are invading the Earth's atmosphere can form a microscopic black hole, say Greek and Russian scientists.

As you know, the usual black holes are born in the time of the explosion big star at the very end of her life. The outer layers of the star in this explosion

Russian physicists launched in Kazakhstan set to study cosmic rays

Experts of the Lebedev Physical Institute of RAS (FIAN), launched in the Tien-Shan Research Station in Kazakhstan, a new experimental installation "Horizon", designed to study cosmic rays — streams of elementary particles from space.

Unit is designed specifically for the registration of Cerenkov radiation — Glow Produced in a transparent medium moving charged particles — and the charged particles of extensive air showers (EAS), a cascade of secondary particles that arise from "hitting the atmosphere" of the particles arriving at Earth in the cosmic rays. With the new installation specialists station going to check the existence

Near Irkutsk began building the largest telescope in the world

On the astrophysical site in Tunkinskaya Valley (Buryatia) is building a telescope TUNKA-HiSCORE

Back in April, Irkutsk physicists have for the project "Gamma-ray astronomy multi-TeV energies and the origin of galactic cosmic rays," Russian Ministry of Education grant of 90 million rubles. These funds have already started the construction of new optical stations and stations for the detection of charged particles.

The value of the project for Russia is that our scientists do not have to travel to other countries to work on accelerators, and leading European research centers will make a huge material and

Research and Education Project invites Russian physicists

Internet users

Yes, yes, and you, the party of "Made in us," you can have a hand for a major project of Russian scientists.

Extensive air shower (scheme)

Research and Education Project Russian physicists allows any Internet user to try to force in modern physics experiment to study cosmic rays with the use of distributed systems for registration of extensive air showers "Mermaid."
