COSMIC RAYS ON
SPACESHIP EARTH


CONTENTS


The Cosmic Rays and Spaceship Earth Web page is an outgrowth of a lecture presented to Delaware teachers at the Space Science Symposium, Nov 11, 2000. That lecture included a demonstration of a spark chamber, a device that makes cosmic rays in our environment visible to the naked eye.
