Creator: Mendez, J.
Peredo, Mauricio
Stern, David P. (David Peter), 1931-
Publisher: David P. Stern
Description: This series of web pages, authored and curated by David P. Stern, gives an elementary discussion of cosmic rays, followed by sections on high energy particles in the universe and high-energy particles from the Sun. It describes the existence particles whose velocity approaches that of light, their probable sources, and their measurement. This is part of a large work, "The Exploration of the Earth's Magnetosphere", that gives a non-mathematical introduction to planetary and solar magnetic fields, space weather, aurora, and charged particle motion. A Spanish translation is available.
