Cosmic rays are something that the general public has heard of, but typically has no idea what it is. Well, Clay hopes to dispel some of that ignorance in this brief text. He explains that these are nuclei often travelling at very high speeds; often several percent of the speed of light. Just being nuclei, without any accompanying electrons, means that they are highly charged. Which gives rise to the experimental methods to detect and study them.

In 1992 the fastest object known to mankind hit the Earth s atmosphere at a speed within a billion-trillionth of one percent of the speed of light, carrying an energy far above that of the most powerful particle accelerator ever built. That object was a cosmic ra. ver 100 cosmic ray particles pass through our bodies every second.

Ultra-high-energy cosmic rays (UHEC) pose further detection problems. Clay, Roger; Dawson, Bruce (1997). Cosmic Bullets: High Energy Particles in Astrophysics. Cambridge, MA: Perseus Books. One way of learning about cosmic rays is using different detectors to observe aspects of a cosmic ray air shower. ISBN 978-0-7382-0139-9.

Cosmic rays have been studied for close to a century and have given us an understanding of the elementary particles that make up matter and the ways in which these particles interact with each other. The work describes what we now know of how cosmic rays are produced and their exotic sources, how we reached this stage, and details the new generation of cosmic ray experiments that are just now starting to take place.
