Title: Muon Detector
Post by: TimCro on May 16, 2019, 10:13 am
Hi All

So I built a muon detector using a couple of Arduino mega boards. Muons come from cosmic rays banging into atoms in our upper atmosphere. Google it if you are interested. I used the Arduino ethernet sheild board to display counts on a website. Here is the address.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Tim

Ok, the power supply in my muon detector died so the web site is broken. Trust me...it was very cool.

Perhaps "original" was reaching a bit. 13 years earlier: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0168900204020844 (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0168900204020844)
