Cosmic Ray

Cosmic Ray

Nature blasts us, every now and then, with cosmic rays. They high energy particles (gamma, etc) can do considerable damage to a tiny part of our bodies, if they hit. I think I just got hit by one. Check out my graph for the past few hours. Note that the largest spike I have recorded, without a source, occured around 11:53 PM, April 22, 2011 EST (Virginia, USA). I normally have a background of 14 CPM. I hit 36 CPM!
