Cosmic Rays (Playlist)

The earth is constantly bombarded by high-energy particles, which influences us in many ways. With new instruments, physicists are searching for the origin of the high-energy particles, thus opening up fascinating insights into the most energetic processes in the universe.

Catching the Fastest Particles in the Universe
Miguel Mostafá | TEDxPSU 2016

What are the most energetic particles in the Universe? Where are they coming from? And more importantly, who cares?



The Pierre Auger Observatory

The Pierre Auger Observatory (Playlist)

On the Pampa Amarilla in western Argentina, the Pierre Auger Observatory is studying the highest-energy particles in the Universe. By detecting and studying these rare particles, the Pierre Auger Observatory is tackling the enigmas of their origin and existence.

A Hybrid Detector (Playlist)

The Auger Observatory is a "hybrid detector", employing two independent methods to detect and study high-energy cosmic rays. The hybrid nature of the Pierre Auger Observatory provides for two independent ways to see cosmic rays.

Kosmische Strahlung

3Sat, 2017

Wir sehen und fühlen sie nicht und doch umgibt sie uns: kosmische Strahlung.
Ein Film von Daniel Vega, der unter anderem das Pierre-Auger-Observatorium vorstellt.

Teilchenlabor in den Anden
Hyperraum TV 26 March 2014

Über den Ursprung der höchstenergetischen Teilchen der kosmischen Strahlung wissen wir heute noch wenig. In den argentinischen Anden wurde in der freien Natur ein gewaltiges Teilchenlabor aufgebaut, das dieses Naturspektakel im Verborgenen permanent beobachtet.

Featuring Jonny Kleinfeller, Project Manager

Energiereichsten Teilchen in der kosmischen Strahlung: Niemand kann heute theoretisch ableiten, woher sie kommen und vor allem wie die unvorstellbar hohen Energien kosmisch erzeugt werden.
