The idea that cosmic rays, interacting in the Earth atmosphere, should generate a large flux of neutrinos, was understood very early, and concrete ideas about possible methods to detect this flux
A glimpse of the intersection between national and international dimensions during the 1930s is provided, at a time when the study of cosmic rays was still very much in its infancy, strongly interlaced with nuclear physics, and full of uncertain, contradictory, and puzzling results.
The current belief was that cosmic rays were simply photons of greater energy than the ones observed in radioactive transformations. In fact, still in 1929, the German literature usually referred to

The discovery of cosmic rays is a standard example of ‘one man’s noise is another man’s signal’. From the apparently minor leakages of electricity from well-insulated detectors came a subject of
With the advent of the Geiger-Muller counter in the late 1920s, the nature of cosmic rays became accessible to exper- imentation. When used single as cosmic-ray detectors, these devices did not have
