Cosmic-ray physics in the space age
Cosmic rays are primarily nuclear particles ranging in energy over about 10 orders of magnitude, from GeV to EeV. The current research activities in each of three broad energy regions of these primary particles are discussed, and outstanding current problems noted. Neutrino and gamma ray astrophysics are also discussed, as are the problems of space travel related to cosmic rays.
