Highly energetic charged particles rain down upon us from above all the time.

Paul will take a look at how this storm of particles was discovered, what they are made of and some of the interesting science of their origins in the Universe

This talk is a little more advanced than most of our talks, but should still be enjoyable by beginner-level viewers
