Ultra high energy cosmic rays

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Ultra high energy particles arrive at Earth constantly. They provide a beam at energies higher than any man-made accelerator, but at a very low rate. Two large experiments, the Pierre Auger Observatory and the Telescope Array experiment, have been taking data for several years now covering together the whole sky. I summarize the most recent measurements from both experiments, I compare their results and, for a change, I highlight their agreements.
