Abstract

The fully ionized atomic nuclei of all the elements from hydrogen up to at least uranium, which constitute the nuclear component of the galactic cosmic radiation, are the only sample of matter which reach us from outside the solar system. We believe that these nuclei were created in the nuclear burning processes that take place inside stars during their evolution, and that the composition of the nuclear cosmic rays is one of the most important sources of information about the nucleosynthesis in the stars and the composition of matter in important regions of our galaxy.
