A TED-Ed Animation Explaining How Cosmic Rays Help Us Understand the Universe

Published by:

In a recent TED-Ed animation, University of Hawaii physics professor Veronica Bindi explains how cosmic rays help us understand the universe.

Luckily, we have space messengers — cosmic rays — that bring us physical data from parts of the cosmos beyond our reach. Veronica Bindi explains what cosmic rays are, and how they transmit information about our universe from the great beyond.
