Mayank Chhaya Interviews John Matthews Regarding Amaterasu Particle

Journalist Mayank Chhaya recently sat down for an interview with Dr. John Matthews of the Telescope Array project to discuss the Amaterasu particle, the second-highest energy particle ever observed.

During the interview, they discuss the nature of cosmic rays, why ultra high-energy cosmic rays are so rare, and why the direction this ray came from is so puzzling for astrophysicists. The interview runs for just over half an hour and covers a broad range of questions concerning the discovery of this new particle, making it an excellent resource for those who are curious about cosmic rays in general.
