As cosmic rays, a radiation from space, keep falling on our heads like some sort of cosmic rain, what do we need to know about them? Can they give us superpowers? Should we be worried about radiation from them? How are our lithium batteries we rely on in our lives dependent on these cosmic rays? How protected are we from them here at Earth and how is the Sun helping with that? How can we use them to see what cannot be seen like insides of volcanoes and pyramids? Join Dr. Tijana Prodanovic, Full Professor at the Faculty of Sciences, University of Novi Sad, as she unlocks the secrets of cosmic rain. Tijana is Doctor of Astrophysics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA, and won the FameLab Serbia contest for science communication in 2008 and was first runner up at the International FameLab 2008 at the Cheltenham Science Festival, UK. She was a Program Director of the Novi Sad Science Festival for 5 years and Program Coordinator of the Researchers’ Night in Serbia for 10 years.
