They had molecular rays, cosmic rays, the energy of matter, then—what else had they now?
Now, our process is only an adaptation of these cosmic rays.
The Ancient Mariner spun about, turned toward the other ship, and let loose a tremendous bombardment of molecular and cosmic rays.
Of course, if it is coming from outside the stratosphere as the cosmic rays do, there is no hope.
It was amazingly sensitive to any form of radioactivity—and the missile, of course, would be "hot" from exposure to cosmic rays.
And he screamed into the now fading glow that he knew was the energy of the cosmic rays.
They know about our theoretical work on cosmic rays, including Suzanne's work up to about a month ago.
Suppose this is what happens when living tissue is exposed to cosmic rays or whatever is up there.
He was remembering the man's words on the cosmic rays and the secret of eternal life they held.
It has molecular rays, magnetic beams and cosmic rays, and a fourth weapon we know nothing of.
|cosmic ray |
A ray of radiation of extraterrestrial origin, consisting of one or more charged particles such as protons, alpha particles, and larger atomic nuclei. Cosmic rays entering the atmosphere collide with atoms, producing secondary radiation, such as pions, muons, electrons, and gamma rays. Cosmic rays (and secondary radiation) can be easily seen in a cloud chamber.
Elementary particles, mainly protons, that are produced by the sun and other stars and then strike the upper atmosphere of the Earth. Some of these particles are absorbed, some help form the Van Allen belt, and some reach the Earth's surface, where they form a part of the background radiation that constantly surrounds us.
