~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Did you know that energetic particles pass through your body all the time?
These particles are created by cosmic rays, which come from outside the Solar System.
Dr. Nahee Park will talk about the discovery of cosmic rays in 1912, what they are and what have we learned from studying them for the past 100 years.
