We are excited about the observations planned here. The idea is to look for world wide shower patterns, of which not much is known since current detectors (well not cosmic ray app!) don’t have a global view of cosmic ray events.

The link to the PDF is here.

Here is our reference:

Thus, all the cosmic ray detectors working in this range, beginning from smartphones (e.g. DECO [4], CRAYFIS [5], CREDO Detector [6–8], Cosmic Ray App [9]) a
