  • The galactic propagation of cosmic ray strangelets is described and the resulting flux is calculated for a wide range of parameters as a prerequisite for strangelet searches in lunar soil and with an Earth orbiting magnetic spectrometer, AMS-02. While the inherent uncertainties are large, flux predictions at a measurable level are obtained for reasonable choices of parameters if strange quark matter is absolutely stable. This allows a direct test of the strange matter hypothesis.
