CREAM (Cosmic Ray Energetics And Mass) is an experiment being constructed to study high-energy cosmic rays from 10 eV to over 5×10 eV using the new ultra long duration balloon (ULDB) capability under development by NASA. ULDB flights are designed to last from 60 to 100 days each. CREAM includes a sampling tungsten/scintillator calorimeter, a transition radiation detector (TRD), and a timing-based charge detector (TCD). This report summarizes the configuration expected to start flying in… CONTINUE READING
