The Pierre Auger Observatory is studying ultra-high energy cosmic rays (UHECRs), the most energetic particles in the universe. When these rare particles strike the atmosphere, they produce extensive air showers made of billions of particles. While cosmic rays with low to moderate energies are well understood, those with extremely high energies remain mysterious.
