Paper Title - Generation of Electricity from Cosmic Rays
This paper describes an alternate way of generation of energy with the help of highly energized cosmic rays
present over there. The space mission requires a lot of fuel that has to be carried all the way. It adds additional weight to an
already heavier spacecraft and requires lot of money. So we have to look for an alternative energy generation system to
tackle this in at least small proportion. We can make use of harmful Cosmic Rays present there. They have energy around
108-1020eV.A method has been discussed to make use of these rays with the help of scintillators and Silicon PMT. This
method can provide energy ona small scale, but even small amount of fuel saved there can save astronauts’ lives.
