The flux of galactic cosmic rays, on the other hand, appears to have influenced ups and downs in both temperature and precipitation over the entire 10-12 thousand years of the Holocene, making it the prime candidate for "prime determinant" of the Earth's climatic state.
Yuan, "Understanding the spectral hardenings and radial distribution of Galactic cosmic rays and Fermi diffuse gamma-rays with spatially-dependent propagation," Physical Review D: Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology, vol.
"In the end, we want to have an answer to the question of whether the galactic cosmic rays influence our climate--and if yes, how and how strong that influence is."
The scientific task consisted in the research of the energy spectra and composition of galactic cosmic rays in the energy range [10.sup.11] - [10.sup.14] eV.
NASA also said that "radiation from galactic cosmic rays, originating from supernova explosions and other extremely distant events, accounted for more of the total radiation experienced on the trip than the amount from solar particle events." The Curiosity rover's two year lifespan is already much longer than the last NASA rovers to get to the Red Planet in 2004.
The study was based on findings from the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN)'s CLOUD experiment, which uses a cloud chamber to study possible associations between galactic cosmic rays and cloud formation.
The structures also shields its occupants as after 6 meters depth, no effects of radiation due to or induced by galactic cosmic rays were observed in simulation, they said.
New experiments provide persuasive evidence to show that the changes in the intensity of galactic cosmic rays can significantly affect global temperature.
"It is important to address the risks to human exploration in space such as ionizing radiation, solar particle events and galactic cosmic rays. The possible risks of space radiation involve cancer, damage to central nervous system, cataracts, heart disease etc," he informed.
Galactic cosmic rays are highly energetic particles, originating from unknown sources outside our solar system and hitting the Earth's surface at an extremely high speed.
Topics of the 22 invited talks include high-energy neutrino astronomy, the origin of galactic cosmic rays, the highest-energy cosmic rays, cosmic rays and gamma radiation from clusters of galaxies, gamma-ray blazars, non-thermal x-ray emission from supernova remnants, gamma-ray line astronomy, and neutrino telescopes.
will use CRaTER to investigate the effect of galactic cosmic rays on tissue-equivalent plastics as a constraint on models of biological response to background space radiation.
