The latest results on the composition of cosmic rays, and their theoretical implications, were discussed at a conference held in Cambridge during July 16–19. They point to a thermonuclear origin, but it is still a matter of speculation whether cosmic rays in the solar vicinity are produced in galactic objects such as supernovae, or whether they originate in extragalactic “violent events”.
