NUCLEON Experiment Nucleon

Goal of experiment

Experiment NUCLEON aimed to direct measurements of the elemental energy spectra of high-energy (1012-1015 eV) cosmic rays (CR) during 5 years (2010-2014) abroad Russian regular satellite.

The main goal of this project -- to clarify the Cosmic Rays origin.

Now it is expected that CR are accelerated in most catastrophic processes in the Galaxy and may be in Universe
