Cosmic ray origin : the way ahead.

Wolfendale, A. W. (2003) 'Cosmic ray origin : the way ahead.', Journal of physics G : nuclear and particle physics., 29 (5). pp. 787-800.


Despite their discovery being 90 years ago cosmic rays are still characterised by their uncertain masses at high energy and their uncertain origin. This paper deals with the origin problem. The case is put for the majority of the particles being of galactic origin-a generally accepted-result. Specific models are put forward for the galactic mechanism and that for the minority extragalactic component.
