Hacking the Cosmos via Crowdsourced Particle Astronomy

Ray H. O'Neal, Jr.

The Cosmic Cube is a proposed "desktop" astroparticle or cosmic ray detector enabling ad-hoc formation of cosmic ray telescopes between cube operators. The speaker will address the use of peer to peer networks of detectors for investigating the nature of the flux of high energy cosmic rays and how the random nature of detection events might also be applied to information security.
