Establishing a consistent local interstellar magnetic field direction using IBEX low-energy neutral atoms and galactic cosmic rays at ten orders of magnitude higher energy levels has wide-ranging implications for the structure of our heliosphere and is an important measurement to be making in tandem with the Voyager 1 spacecraft, which is in the process of passing beyond our heliosphere.

Two forms of radiation pose potential health risks to astronauts: a chronic low dose of galactic cosmic rays (GCRs) and the possibility of short-term exposures to the solar energetic particles (SEPs) associated with solar flares and coronal mass ejections.
Topics include the relation between magnetic energy and helicity, the hydrodynamics of colliding circumstellar bubbles, the stability of cosmic ray precursors, supernova remnants as the source of galactic cosmic rays, and polarimeters for HARPS and X-shooter.
New experiments provide persuasive evidence to show that the changes in the intensity of galactic cosmic rays can significantly affect global temperature.
Galactic cosmic rays are highly energetic particles, originating from unknown sources outside our solar system and hitting the Earth's surface at an extremely high speed.
Since the mid-1990s Svensmark has been doggedly researching the correlation between galactic cosmic rays and climate, despite ridicule from the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that his work is "scientifically extremely naive and irresponsible.
Topics of the 22 invited talks include high-energy neutrino astronomy, the origin of galactic cosmic rays, the highest-energy cosmic rays, cosmic rays and gamma radiation from clusters of galaxies, gamma-ray blazars, non-thermal x-ray emission from supernova remnants, gamma-ray line astronomy, and neutrino telescopes.
will use CRaTER to investigate the effect of galactic cosmic rays on tissue-equivalent plastics as a constraint on models of biological response to background space radiation.
