Telescope in Utah detects mysterious cosmic ray beyond our galaxy

Scientists from the University of Utah and the University of Tokyo have detected an extremely rare, ultra-high-energy cosmic ray, likely originating from beyond the Milky Way galaxy. This discovery is crucial for understanding cosmic ray origins and the universe’s extreme environments. The cosmic ray’s energy level is unprecedented, challenging current astrophysical models. Researchers used the Telescope Array, a cosmic ray observatory in Utah, to make this finding. Such rare cosmic rays provide insights into distant astrophysical sources and the nature of cosmic accelerators. This breakthrough contributes to unraveling mysteries surrounding high-energy particles and their cosmic origins, advancing our comprehension of the universe’s fundamental processes. By Coshorts
