The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) have produced a free poster for schools, all about cosmic rays.

Cosmic rays are charged subatomic particles which originate from various sources in space, including the Sun.  They are now used by scientists to study subatomic particles here on Earth.

Use the poster to discuss astronomy, particle physics, atomic physics or how science works.

You can order a copy of the poster which will be posted free to UK addresses from STFC.

You can also download the teachers' notes and download a copy of the cosmic rays poster.
