Doubts about gamma ray bursts as the source of cosmic radiation

Our Earth is incessantly bombarded by high-energy particles, so-called cosmic rays. These comprise especially protons, neutrons, electrons and muons, but also heavier atomic nuclei. Even though they were first discovered exactly 100 years ago, to this day the source of cosmic rays remains one of the greatest mysteries in physics. The IceCube experiment, a huge neutrino detector in Antarctica, has now helped to unravel this mystery a bit further.
