SEVAN detector installed on Zugspitze in Bavarian Alps (Apr 26, 2023)
Armenian and German SEVAN groups established the SEVAN module at the Environmental research station Scheefernhaus (Zugspitze, 2650 m). A historical site where Johim Kuettner performed seminal experiments on the charge structure of the thundercloud in 1945-1949. The near-surface electric field (NSEF) measurements will support particle flux measurements with the EFM-100 sensor...
Climb to Aragats (Duty shift change in February) (Feb 8, 2023)
The Aragats Cosmic Ray observatory, used for studying particle acceleration in outer space and the terrestrial atmosphere (see attachment), is located at an elevation of 3200 m . asl (above sea level) on the shore of Kare Lake (Kari Lij). Strong winds, predominantly from west to northwest, relocate large amounts of unconsolidated winter snow, accumulating on the sheltered...
New Discoveries of Aragats Physicists (Jan 6, 2023)
The first years of Armenia's independence were very difficult for the staff at Yerevan Physics Institute’s Cosmic Ray Division (CRD). With funding suddenly stopped from the largest soviet ministry, there was no fuel, electricity, and food. Monthly salaries were the equivalent of five U.S. dollars. The construction of the world’s largest cosmic ray experiment, ANI...
Continuation of TEPA conference series in the Czech Republic (Nov 4, 2022)
The new emerging field of high-energy physics in the atmosphere (HEPA) has been enriched recently by important observations of particle fluxes on Earth’s surface, in the troposphere, and in space. HEPA presently includes three main types of measurements: Terrestrial Gamma Ray Flashes (TGFs) – brief bursts of gamma radiation (sometimes also electrons and positrons)...

Луч смерти | Космические убийцы (Jan 20, 2022)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqQRnkHc2so Для многих космос - это что-то фантастическое и романтическое. На самом деле это очень опасное место. Одно из сокрушительных оружий космоса - космическая радиация. Как проникают сквозь толщу атмосферы Земли гамма-лучи и другие "лучи смерти"? После гибели крупной звезды всплеск радиации способен...
