Abstract

Data from the NUCLEON space observatory give a strong indication of the existence of a new universal cosmic ray “knee”, which is observed in all groups of nuclei, including heavy nuclei, near a magnetic rigidity of about 10TV. Universality means the same position of the knee in the magnetic rigidity scale for all groups of nuclei. The knee is observed by both methods of measurement of particles energy implemented in the NUCLEON observatory – the calorimetric method and the kinematic method Kinematic Lightweight Energy Meter. This new cosmic ray “knee” is probably connected with the limit of acceleration of cosmic rays by some generic or nearby source of cosmic rays.
