Astrophysics with Multi-Messengers and the Origin of the Most Energetic Cosmic Rays in the Universe

Science / Physics

The dawn of multi-messenger astrophysics heralds a new era in our cosmic quest, ushering in an unprecedented means of understanding the cosmos not only through the familiar medium of light but also through the enigmatic messengers of gravitational waves and neutrinos. This profound advancement has unlocked the doors to previously inaccessible astrophysical phenomena, empowering us to delve into fundamental questions that have long perplexed humanity. Among these enigmas lies the origin of cosmic rays, high-energy charged particles that permeate the cosmos, defying our current understanding of celestial processes. Neutrinos, elusive elementary particles born from the interactions of these cosmic rays, hold the key to unraveling this mystery. Yet, their ephemeral nature has hindered their detection, until now. By harnessing the power of data science to seamlessly integrate the information gleaned from these newly discovered astrophysical neutrinos with catalogs of sources observed across the vast electromagnetic spectrum, we are charting the most promising path towards unraveling this centuries-old cosmic conundrum.
