Cosmic Rays

WU Mag 1965 cover
Despite the name, cosmic rays are high-speed particles (atomic nuclei or electrons), not part of the electromagnetic spectrum. These were the primary focus of Michael's physics research for most of his career. Not only did he produce primary research in the topic, but he sought to share information with a wide audience through articles, public lectures, and two books.

His research is encapsulated on this bibliography page (with abstracts for nearly every paper). This includes his work at the University of Bristol (UK) as well as at Washington University, especially with balloon campaigns to remote areas such as Palestine, Texas and internal parts of South Africa.

This page has articles about his work, as well as material written by him.
