Using data collected at the Pierre Auger Observatory during the past 3.7 years, we demonstrated a correlation between the arrival directions of cosmic rays with energy above 6 x 10(19) electron volts and the positions of active galactic nuclei (AGN) lying within approximately 75 megaparsecs. We rejected the hypothesis of an isotropic distribution of these(More)
The paper by Belyaev [Phys. Rev. E 72, 026406 (2005)] reported the first experimental observation of alpha particles produced in the thermonuclear reaction 11B(p,alpha)8Be induced by laser irradiation on a 11B polyethylene (CH2) composite target. The laser used in the experiment is characterized by a picosecond pulse duration and a peak of intensity of(More)
In this paper we present a method to retrieve the Cloud Top Height (CTH), that is a refined version of a stereoscopic method present in literature. It is applied to stereo image pairs obtained by observations of the Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) geostationary satellites in a stereo setup. The performance of the method is tested both as mono band and(More)
We evaluate the exposure during nadir observations with JEM-EUSO, the Extreme Universe Space Observatory, on-board the Japanese Experiment Module of the International Space Station. Designed as a mission to explore the extreme energy Universe from space, JEM-EUSO will monitor the Earth's nighttime atmosphere to record the ultraviolet light from tracks(More)
