Although our daily appreciation of the sky around us does not allow us to see them with the naked eye, every second our planet is bombarded by an infinite number of subatomic particles from outer space called cosmic rays.
The spearhead research into cosmic radiation is the JEM EUSO project. A telescope that whilst orbiting our planet aboard the International Space Station, will observe the Earth's atmosphere and the phenomena that occur in it when cosmic rays of higher energy collide with air molecules.
