Nova Labs is now hosting a cosmic ray detector from Project ERGO.
ERGO (Energetic Ray Global Observatory) is a distributed sensor network based on inexpensive appliances which detect charged particles (cosmic rays) at each node, and report data back for analysis. The appliance is a small, self-contained unit which contains a Raspberry Pi, GPS (to report the node’s location and keep ultra-accurate time) and a Geiger counter tube as a particle detector. It’s connected via Ethernet to our network, and uploads data to a giant database that researchers can mine for patterns of cosmic ray activity. There is an interactive map at http://data.ergotelescope.org/map/google_earth but it looks like our location hasn’t been updated yet.
More to come when we’re updated on the global map!
