Caption

Cosmic ray particle. Image by Karl Darrow (1891-1982), showing the track of a cosmic ray particle with abundant branches (auger). Cosmic rays are high-energy radiation of unknown origin, mainly originating outside the Solar System. This radiation mainly consists of high-energy protons and atomic nuclei. Data from space telescopes now suggest that a high proportion of this radiation comes from the supernovae of massive stars.
