Cosmic Rays Influence Cloud Formation

John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Little more than a century ago Austrian-American physicist Victor Hess established that out in the Universe charged particles are accelerated to very high energies, some eventually making their way to Earth. While much of the research into the curiously named cosmic rays – they, in fact, are not rays at all – has focused on determining their origins, scientists have also devoted considerable effort to studying their effects on...

Our ℠Blue Dot´ is adrift in a cosmic soup of powerful solar winds, magnetic fields, and cosmic rays; even the Vatican Observatory has studied the heavens for hundreds of years. Climate change focus on global warming and carbon dioxide (CO2) is near-sighted, causing wasteful climate policies that have pushed millions into a “heat or eat poverty crisis” that is based on faulty science. Calgary, Alberta, Canada (PRWEB) March 22, 2013 Earth Hour purports to unite people...

Image 1 - Supernovae Could Have Had Impact On Life On Earth

New research by a Danish physicist suggests that life might have been influenced by supernovae near the Solar System. When massive stars reach the end of their life, they explode as supernovae, which can be brighter than an entire galaxy of normal stars. The remnants of these events release vast numbers of high-energy charged particles known as galactic cosmic rays (GCR). If a supernova is close enough to our Solar System, the enhanced GCR levels can have direct impacts on the...

Scientists in the U.K. have reported evidence that further refutes one theory of global climate change.In the heated debate over global warming, there is an opposing idea, called the cosmic ray theory, which contends that climate change is simply caused by cosmic rays coming from the sun.However, researchers at Lancaster University reported in the Institute of Physics journal that there has been no correlation between solar activity and the Earth's climate.Pioneered by Dr. Henrik Svensmark at...

Cosmic Rays -- Cosmic Rays. Cosmic rays are energetic particles that are found in space and filter through our atmosphere. Cosmic rays have interested scientists for many different reasons. They come from all directions in space, and the origination of many of these cosmic rays is unknown. Cosmic rays were originally discovered because of the ionozation they produce in our atmosphere. Cosmic rays also have an extreme energy range of incident particles, which have allowed physicists to...
