High Energy Particles From Space

Astronomers are popularly supposed to observe the cosmos using visible light. However, today they use the whole 70 octave electromagnetic spectrum from the longest wavelength - 20 meter - radio waves to the highest energy - 100 TeV - gamma rays.

Primordial Inflation

The universe began in a hot big bang 13.7 billion years ago. It is remarkably homogeneous on the large scale and at the time we observe the cosmic microwave background parts that are out of contact with each other are similar at the level of about ten parts per million. How did this remarkable synchronization come about?

Reionization

Roughly 400,000 years after the Big Bang, the universe – bathing in the afterglow of radiation that we see today as the cosmic microwave background – began to enter the cosmic “dark ages,” so named because the luminous stars and galaxies we see today had yet to form.
