Context. Particle-accelerating colliding-wind binaries (PACWBs) are systems that are formed by two massive and hot stars and produce nonthermal (NT) radiation. The key elements of these systems are fast winds and the shocks that they create when they collide. Binaries with nonaccreting young pulsars have also been detected as NT emitters, again as a consequence of the wind-wind interaction. Black holes (BHs) might produce NT radiation by this mechanism if they accrete at super-Eddington rates…

Origin of Cosmic Rays

The observed isotropy of the cosmic rays incident on the earth is claimed to be a consequence of a magnetic field assumed to exist in interstellar space, which is compared with the average interstellar field of 10−20 gauss.
