Kozmični delci ekstremnih energij prihajajo do nas iz izvorov izven naše galaksije
Znanstveniki mednarodne kolaboracije Pierre Auger so danes (22. septembra 2017) v prestižni znanstveni reviji Science objavili izsledke raziskav, ki kažejo, da kozmični delci z več miljonkrat višjimi energijami, kot jih imajo protoni v velikem hadronskem trkalniku LHC, prihajajo iz izvorov izven naše galaksije. Pri raziskavah so sodelovali slovenski raziskovalci z Univerze v Novi Gorici in Instituta »Jožef Stefan«.

The new observatory for astronomy with high energy gamma rays, Cherenkov Telescope Array – CTA – will be placed in La Palma, Spain, and in Paranal, Chile
The high frequency cosmic gamma rays are an exceptionally important source of information, specifically on the processes in space which are most energy-driven and marked, as this is still the area of research where our understanding of natural laws tends to be limited.
