Abstract

Galactic and Solar Cosmic Radiation. The nucleonic radiation in contrast to electromagnetic waves and electrons represents a continuous influx of matter. One part of it, the Galactic Cosmic Radiation (Galactic C. R.), originates very probably from extremely active stellar atmospheres or special objects like magnetic stars or supernovae. It is presumably injected in a large scale acceleration mechanism in the galaxy and finally trapped in very extended and relatively weak magnetic fields present in the so-called Galactic radio-corona which surrounds the proper galaxy. (L1) A minor fraction of high energy charged particles originates at the sun.
