Cosmic rays: powerful messengers across the universe
Sunil K. Gupta, TIFR

Highly energetic particles, with energies even a million times higher than the most powerful accelerators like CERN's LHC, bombard the Earth's atmosphere continuously. Where do they come from? How do these particles get their incredible energies? Since 1955, TIFR has been studying cosmic rays from the beautiful hills of Ooty. Today the GRAPES-3 experiment led by a consortium of Indian and Japanese researchers after having developed and installed some cool instruments is starting to provide remarkable new insights into cosmic rays. And guess what, these particles not only tell us about stuff happening beyond our galaxy, but even provide amazing information on thunderstorms that affect our local weather. You don't need to go beyond the galaxy, or even to Ooty, just come to Chai and Why? to hear some most fascinating stories.

About the speaker: Sunil. K. Gupta is a Senior Professor in TIFR and has worked in experimental astroparticle physics in Ooty since 1976 and has research interests in understanding acceleration of particles in the universe by building and using cutting-edge detectors.
