This amazing engineer explains how we are continuously bombarded by radiation from space. He shares his idea of developing an open source networked detector for these cosmic rays, creating a massive cosmic ray telescope and empowering citizens to take part in the scientific process.
Inspired by a TED talk, James Devine started the CosmicPi project to design and build a DIY cosmic ray detector. He is recruiting citizen scientists to build and operate individual detector pixels in their own homes, linking them together over the internet so that the data gathered can be shared and analysed by scientists, both amateur and professional alike.
