The cosmic ray all-particle spectrum has a small steepening of its spectral slope, or ‘knee’, near 10 eV. Changes in the nuclear composition of cosmic rays may be associated with the knee and provide clues concerning the origin of the spectral change. An ultra-long duration balloon experiment, Cosmic Ray Energetics and Mass (CREAM), is being constructed to measure cosmic ray elemental spectra at energies just below the knee to look for evidence of changes in composition. CREAM employs a thin… CONTINUE READING
