First result from the AMS experiment: the beginning of a rich cosmic ray program
Center for Astroparticle Physics (CAP Genève) Université de Genève, Switzerland
More than 100 years after the discovery of cosmic rays by Victor Hess, our knowledge of their sources and transport is still rather rudimentary. This does not only concern the astrophysical phenomena, which create and accelerate charged particles, but also the potential role of particle physics and cosmological mechanisms.
