Astronomy with Big Buckets of Water: Looking at the Cosmos with Cosmic Rays  (Public Programs)

Professor Jim Linnemann will respond to the question: What are cosmic rays and how were they discovered? How can particles of light with trillions of times the energy of the light particles from the sun be used to do astronomy and learn about the sources of cosmic rays? HAWC, a cosmic ray observatory currently under construction, will detect and measure these cosmic rays of fabulously high energy.
