On the Origin of the Cosmic Radiation

A theory of the origin of cosmic radiation is proposed according to which cosmic rays are originated and accelerated primarily in the interstellar space of the galaxy by collisions against moving magmetic fields. One of the features of the theory is that it yields naturally an inverse power law for the spectral distribution of the cosmic rays. The chief difficulty is that it fails to explain in a straight-forward way the heavy nuclei observed in the primary radiation. [1]

The Heavy Nuclei of the Primary Cosmic Radiation

The flux of primary cosmic-ray nuclei, heavier than protons, was determined at geomagnetic latitudes λ=55° and λ=30° °N. It is shown that at λ=30° at least one-half of the incident nucleons and a significant fraction of the incident cosmic-ray energy is due to the heavy component. [2]

Cosmic Radiation and the Weather

THE purpose of this communication is to point out the existence of a large tropospheric and stratospheric effect produced by the solar-cycle modulation of cosmic rays. Since there is some evidence for solar-cycle correlations in the weather, the phenomena described here should be considered in attempts to understand climatological effects of solar-cycle period.

Influence of Cosmic Ray Invasions and Aerosol Plasma on Powerful Atmospheric Vortices

The Earth’s atmosphere is affected by various ionizing sources. The maximum ionization of atmospheric particles by cosmic rays corresponds to the altitude of formation of tropospheric clouds. In the high-latitude troposphere for the region of the geomagnetic polar cap, in the winter period, the excitation of local cyclonic structures are observed which are accompanied with ice storms, with invasions into middle and subtropical latitudes.

This paper develops the previously stated assertion that a cosmic microwave background cannot be relic, existing and cooling down independently without interaction with a substance. The inflationary model is also not able to “cool” the background electromagnetic radiation. This means that the Universe is surrounded by a massive halo, generating not only the microwave, but also the X-ray cosmic background. Characteristics of electromagnetic radiation describe the structure of the halo of the Universe and indicate the nature of the distribution of matter in the Universe. [5]
