Capturing a Piece of Cosmic Ray

I mentioned earlier about the Auger Observatory project and how we are involved in it indirectly via the AirFly collaboration. This news article reports on the effort to gain support from farmers and also monetary support from governments to build what is known as "Auger North". This will be a large number of detectors in the plains of Colorado to compliment with the already built detectors on the pampas of Argentina.

Hope they don't have the same problem of the cows rubbing against the detector tanks as they have for the ones in Argentina. I thought that was hysterically funny.
