It has been found that the cosmic-ray particles which occur in showers of small angular divergence are much more penetrating than those of the usual type of shower. The particles in such "hard showers" are clearly not electrons and are interpreted as medium and low energy mesotrons. The second...
The behavior of electrons and photons of high energy is discussed in relation to the production of large bursts of cosmic-ray ionization, or Hoffmann Stösse , and the occurrence of nuclear "vaporizations." It is shown that the electrons from the disintegration of mesotrons have an importance...
The variation of the hard cosmic-ray component with zenith angle and the temperature effect suggest that the cosmic mesotrons decay with a lifetime of about 3 × 10 - 6 sec. The other phenomena so far considered (variation with height, barometer effect, shape of the energy spectrum, number of...
