Scientists Determine Origin Of Cosmic Rays

The Post Chronicle: "This is a fundamental discovery, said Nobel laureate James Cronin, a professor emeritus in physics at the University of Chicago. 'The age of cosmic-ray astronomy has arrived. In the next few years, our data will permit us to identify the exact sources of these cosmic rays and how they accelerate these particles. We have taken a big step forward in solving the mystery of the nature and origin of the highest-energy cosmic rays, he added. "
