Abstract

BOTHE and Kolhörster1 wore the first to show that the cosmic rays manifest themselves to us as highly penetrating corpuscular rays. Direct experimental data on the nature as well as on the energy of these rays are still lacking; they might be obtained by experiments on the magnetic deflection if a sufficiently large and intense magnetic field could bo reached.
