Yet the standard products available in the s could only detect slow protons and alpha particles. This article has tried to give an overview of the history of astroparticle physics, taking into account its components, with some being much older than this relatively young field, which is only around twenty years old.

Since the early nineties some candidates have been found to partially explain adtroparticle of the missing dark matter, but they are nowhere near sufficient to offer a full explanation. Philosophical implications Many of the philosophical problems that can be found in the field of astroparticle physics are closely linked to its history.

Being a potential topic for a brupen study of its own, it is beyond the scope of this article to look at the contents of the curricula of academic teaching in astroparticle physics. Without discussing the problems of objectivity in historiography at this point, it seems to be quite obvious that a collection of autobiographical articles by the physicists that have been involved in most of the events being described is less objective than an analysis of the facts by historians of science.

Astroparticle Physics – Claus Grupen – Google Books

Beginning with the earliest history of the confirmation of the existence of cosmic rays, mainly the work on the different phenomena of radioactivity and electricity, which led to the discovery of the residual ionization effect [ physice, the book concentrates very much on the various contributions of cosmic-ray research to early particle physics. Methodology of model construction by a research collective.

These external aspects have been described by historians of science as being defined by the community and its ongoing exchange on the topic, the growing tendency to form institutions and the self-reproductive character mirrored in academic publishing and teaching.

Viju Chellamuthu marked it as to-read Mar 01, Dordrecht, Netherlands; Boston, U.

Astroparticle physics – Wikipedia

Though air is a good isolator, experiments with a gold-leaf electroscope showed that beta-rays and other similar rays are able to ionize air [ 5975]. Farrar, Straus and Giroux; Can That Be Right? Theoretische Gesichtspunkte zur Deutung der kosmischen Strahlung. The field can physiics said to have begun inwhen a German physicist named Theodor Wulf measured the ionization in the air, an indicator of gamma radiation, at the bottom and top of the Eiffel Tower.

Of Matter and Forces in the Yrupen World. Partly motivated by the discovery of neutrino oscillationthe field has undergone rapid development, both theoretically and experimentally, since the early s. Apart from this, some physicists state that it is more rewarding for them to pursue particle physics beyond the standard model to try to answer the many open questions that have first been put by cosmology with the help of astroparticle physics [ 43 ]. Undoubtedly the study of cosmic radiation, in experiment and theory alike, can be understood as the basis of high-energy physics HEP and particle physics.

Astroparticle Physics

This interesting blending of different methods points at another important aspect concerning the historical analysis of early cosmic-ray studies. More recent approaches have tried to make use of different methods of astroparticle physics, like neutrino detection, as a possible means of learning more about dark matter. Upper limit of the spectrum of cosmic rays. It appears rather as if different experimental and theoretical aspects taken grupne formed the crucial new information.


Some books about famous physicists who were involved in early cosmic-ray studies, astrkparticle already been written, such as about Millikan [ ].

Der Ursprung der modernen Wissenschaften: After a historical introduction the basics of elementary particles, Explains particle interactions and the relevant detection techniques, while modern aspects of astroparticle physics are described in a chapter on cosmolog Describes the branch of astronomy in which processes in the universe are investigated with experimental methods employed in particle-physics experiments. Computers Today the usage of computers in general is so common among physicists that this method might be seen as self-evident, but the application of ever-better computer programs to various scientific problems must have been quite a relief for researchers in the s and s, both for the mathematical analysis of collected data and the calculation of theoretical predictions.

Astropartice Concept of Observation in Science and Philosophy. Yet the problem physixs that these books either treat cosmic-ray studies or astroparticle physics as one example, while the thematic emphasis lies on some different point or they have a mere scientific standpoint, sometimes lightened up by a few biographical anecdotes.

Selected pages Title Page.

Finally it has even been questioned whether there is still a unity of the sciences today [ 72 ], whether it has actually ever existed [ 7295 ] and what advantages and disadvantages either unity or disunity of the sciences would bring [ 95 ]. This correlation has not been the topic of more detailed research so far.
