Telescope Array UPSC NOTE

 Why in News

  • An extremely energetic cosmic ray, an extragalactic particle with an energy exceeding about 240 exa-electron volts (EeV) — has been detected by the Telescope Array experiment’s surface detector. 

  • According to the findings, its arrival direction shows no obvious source. 

  • Although low-energy cosmic rays emanate from the sun, the origins of rarer ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays (UHECRs) are thought to be related to the most energetic phenomena in the Universe, such as those involving black holes.

Telescope Array
  • The Telescope Array is a large-scale cosmic ray experiment located in the desert of Millard County, Utah, United States

  • It is designed to study the highest-energy particles in the universe, known as ultra-high-energy cosmic rays (UHECRs).

The Telescope Array consists of two main components:

  1. Surface detector array: An array of 507 scintillation surface detectors, each 3 m2 located on a 1.2 km (3/4 mile) square grid. The surface detectors measure the distribution of charged particles at the Earth's surface when an air shower strikes.

  1. Fluorescence detectors: Three fluorescence detectors located on a 30 km triangle. The fluorescence detectors measure the scintillation light generated as the air shower passes through the gas of the atmosphere. 

  • The Telescope Array has observed UHECRs with energies greater than 1018eV, which is more than a hundred million times the energy of the most powerful particle accelerators on Earth. 

  • The origin of these particles is still a mystery, but they are thought to come from the most distant reaches of the universe.

  • The Telescope Array is a valuable tool for understanding the universe and its origins

  • It is also helping to develop new technologies for detecting UHECRs and other high-energy particles.
