cosmic rays.noun
You hear them when you are tuning between stations on your radio. They are the nuclei of atoms streaking through our Milky Way Galaxy at speeds close to the speed of light, most of them being protons, the nuclei of the lightest form of hydrogen. Ten thousand of their fragments will touch you by the time you finish reading about them here. They are rays of extremely short wave length and can safely be called ultragamma rays. Their radioactive decay shows them to be about 10 million years old. They are natives of our Milky Way Galaxy. These rays are ordinary atoms that get supercharged to ultra high speeds and energy. We think these rays get their boost from supernova explosions and surely the photons have a considerable effect too, but no one is sure of their origination or of the amount of effect of sources affecting them. The true source of the power to energize these rays and the source of the atoms remains unknown, except for believing the Creator did it:.Hebrews 1:3 ".....and upholding all things by the word of his power....." Proverbs 26:10 "The great God that formed all things....." Isaiah 44:24 ".....I am the LORD that makes all things; that stretches forth the heavens alone; that spreads abroad the earth by myself." Colossians 1:16,17 "For by him were all things created, that are in heaven and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones or dominions, or principalities or powers. All things were created by him and for him...And he is before all things and by him all things consist."
