Cosmic Radiations – East West Effect -Discovery of Positron- Cosmic Ray Showers

Cosmic Rays or Cosmic Radiation Soon after 1900 it was shown by scientists that the air in an ionisation chamber, which was completely protected against penetration of α , β and γ rays, by surrounding it with thick lead walls, was still conductive; and it was thought that the inns causing this conductivity were produced by some rays coming from an unknown source. In 1911, Hess and Kolhoster, by placing ionization chambers in balloons and sending then to great heights…

Elementary Particle Physics

Particle physics is the study of Particles, from what everything is made of. In this section of physics we study the fundamental particles that make up all of matter, and their mutual interaction. Everything around us is made up of these particles, you may say, made up of fundamental building blocks of nature. So, what are these building blocks? In the early nineteenth century, it was believed that atoms were fundamental; they were thought to be the smallest part of…
