  00:25:00  2016  HD 16/9  Color  Sound

Cosmic rays are continuously sweeping over the Earth. Many of the numerous low energy rays come from the sun. The much rarer high energy rays are messengers from the universe, and scientists are still striving to find where they originate.
Answering this question of the origin of these extreme energy particles would resolve a primordial enigma about the ultra violent phenomena occurring in our universe.
In the province of Mendoza, the Pierre Auger Observatory is the temple of the detection of high energy cosmic rays detection. 1600 detectors placed at 1.5km from each other continuously detect particles and 4 very high sensitivity telescopes look at the ultra violet range.
