Ultra-high-energy cosmic particles originate beyond our galaxy
Today (22 September 2017) the scientists of the international Pierre Auger Collaboration published their research findings showing that cosmic particles with a million times higher energies than the energy of proton in the large hadron collider originate outside of our galaxy. The results were published in the prestigious scientific journal Science. The research team included Slovene researchers from the University of Nova Gorica and the Jožef Stefan Institute.

International agreement for the Pierre Auger Observatory upgrade, and the extension of the studies of nature and origin of the extreme energy cosmic particles for the next 10 years
Ultra-high energy cosmic rays are elementary particles and nuclei, which travel across the Universe with energies more than 10 million times higher than the most energetic particles in the man-made accelerators.
22. September 2015
A Publication in the Esteemed Scientific Journal Nature Communications
Under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Giovanni De Ninno, the research members of the Laboratory of Quantum Optics at the University of Nova Gorica, together with the researchers at the Sinhrotron in Trieste, published an article in the esteemed scientific journal Nature Communications on 20 August.
22. July 2015
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.
