Cosmic Ray Science Interest Group
Co-Chairs of the CRSIG are Igor Moskalenko and Jim Beatty.
The goals of the Cosmic Ray Science Interest Group (CRSIG) are to provide quantitative metrics and assessments to NASA in regard to current and future needs of the cosmic-ray astrophysics community and to act as a focal point and forum for the cosmic ray community.
CRSIG will work towards producing a white paper covering:
- the major open science questions
- a brief survey of the current and planned, US and International, space and ground-based projects—their energy coverage (from about 108 eV to 102 eV), sky coverage, and particle type coverage (electrons, positrons, nucleons, anti-nucleons, nuclei, anti-nuclei, neutrinos, and new particles)
- a survey of the state-of-the-art capabilities, the next generation technology needs, and potential science return from new technologies and capabilities
- a vision for the future of cosmic ray science in space
The CRSIG is open to all members of the community.
