|Title:||Cosmic rays in the galaxy: a new precision era|
|Date:||18 October 2018|
|Start:||16:00 (Doors open and coffee available at 15:30)|
Recent results by space borne experiments took cosmic ray data to a precision level. These new results are able to challenge the conventional scenario for cosmic ray acceleration and propagation in the Milky Way. I will give an overview of the latest results of the cosmic ray fluxes, and some possible interpretations will be discussed. These measurements have a common feature, namely the presence of unexpected and still not yet fully understood spectral features.
