Highlights from the Pierre Auger Observatory

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


With an accumulated exposure of over 50,000 km2 sr yr, the Auger Observatory boasts the largest statistical sample of ultra-high energy cosmic rays. We present highlights of recent results from Auger, including details of the energy spectrum, sensitivity to primary composition, searches for anisotropies and candidate sources, and searches for neutral cosmic messengers. Explorations of hadronic interaction physics with Auger, as well as upgrade plans for the Observatory, while peripheral to the results presented here, feature prominently in companion articles within these proceedings.
