Summary
The history of cosmic ray research is a story of scientific adventure. For nearly a century, cosmic ray researchers have climbed mountains, ridden hot air balloons, and traveled to the far corners of the Earth in the quest to understand these energetic particles from space. They have solved some scientific mysteries - and revealed many more. With each passing decade, scientists have discovered higher-energy, and increasingly more rare, cosmic rays. This science bulletin profiles the Pierre Auger Project, the largest scientific enterprise ever conducted in the search for the unknown sources of the highest-energy cosmic rays ever observed
