EFI Mini-Symposium: In Honor of Dietrich Muller
October 20, 2006 | 9:30 AM | RI 480, University of Chicago

The constant bombardment of the Earth by particles from space has been an intriguing topic since its discovery nearly a century ago. Some of the most important advances in the understanding of this cosmic radiation and its origin have been made by direct measurements above the atmosphere. This mini-symposium is in honor of Dietrich Muller, who has been a leader in this field for many years. The program provides an overview of some of the key scientific issues in the field of cosmic ray measurements and a discussion of future possibilities in the context of NASA's scientific balloon program.
