The Pierre Auger Collaboration wins award of physicsworld.com: "To the Pierre Auger Observatory collaboration for showing that ultra-high-energy cosmic rays come from outside the Milky Way."
We are very happy to announce the election of our new spokespersons at the recent collaboration meeting of the Pierre Auger Observatory.
In a recent calibration campaign at the Pierre Auger Observatory, the directional and frequency characteristics of the radio stations equipped with logarithmic periodic dipole antennas (LPDAs) have been determined using a remotely piloted octocopter.
To estimate the energy of any cosmic ray event detected by the Pierre Auger Observatory, the detectors have to be calibrated.
On August 17, 2017 the LIGO and Virgo collaboration measured a gravitational wave originating from a binary neutron star merger.
