Description

The main goal of the Pierre Auger Observatory is to study cosmic rays with energies above 1 EeV with unprecedented statistics and learn about the origin and nature of these extremely energetic particles. We will review the latest results obtained by the Auger Observatory concerning the energy spectrum, arrival directions, mass composition and flux limits of non-charged particles and further discuss implications of these results.
