Cosmic Radiation Monitor

   Cosmic radiation/rays are ionised particles from space, which enter the higher atmosphere and produce a cascade of secondary particles - primarily muons. These are detected in coincidence mode when the pass through two detectors at "almost" same time which also determines the direction of flight. This project will be based on top of an existing project background radiation monitor which uses an RM-80 Geiger counter.
   The project will require a second Geiger counter and coincidence box. I also plan to add to servomotors to the mount so one could have directional reading. I soon as I have all parts in place I will update this page with a real time graph.
