Cosmic Radiation and Fundamental Problems in Physics
Cosmic-ray research has advanced our understanding of fundamental problems in physics, when concepts previously used are shown to have a limited range of applicability. Since cosmic rays contain information on the behaviour of matter in the smallest (elementary particles) and largest dimensions (the universe), they have been particularly valuable in testing the concepts of daily life in relation to their meaning in physics and in leading physicists to find new ones.
