The question arises: what energy could be cosmic rays, if the distance between the source and the Earth would be much less than the Greisen-Zatsepin-Kuzmin limit, and could not microparticle produce a huge macroscopic effect?
At locations both in and outside of Japan, ICRR has conducted research on high-energy cosmic rays, high-energy gamma rays, and neutrinos; for example, the Super-Kamiokande(5) Project has discovered neutrino oscillations and the Tibet AS-gamma Experiment used cosmic rays to observe the sun's cosmic-ray shadow(6).
We should like to say few words about the leader of the works of the group--Sergey Nikolaevich Vernov (SNV, 19161982), who started his cosmic ray studies at the age just above 20.
The effect of cosmic ray intensity over long periods, however, could add or subtract to the global warming.
A gamma-spectrometer with a scintillation detector was used to measure hard cosmic ray flux (HCRF) ([TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] 1984; [TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] 1988).
Energetic cosmic rays have a damaging effect on living organisms, which is substantially greater than X-rays or gamma-rays (Goldman, 1982; Shimada, Shima, Nojima, Seino, & Setlow, 2005).
"Cosmic ray electrons lose energy during their journey through the galaxy," said Jim Adams, ATIC research lead at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.
However, it is also clear that since about 1980, while the total solar radiation, its ultraviolet component, and the cosmic ray intensity all exhibit the 11-year solar periodicity, there has otherwise been no significant increase in their values.
The Super-Kamiokande facility, operated by the university's Institute of Cosmic Ray Research, was damaged in November when a chain reaction destroyed most of the photomultiplier tubes installed in the system.
This would happen only if a cosmic ray particle, streaking down from above, shot vertically through both counters.
Chances are it is just a cosmic ray hitting the image sensor.
