[CRI073] POEMMA: Probe Of Extreme Multi-Messenger Astrophysics

Primary authors



The Probe Of Extreme Multi-Messenger Astrophysics (POEMMA) mission is design to establish charged particle astronomy with ultra-high energy cosmic rays (UHECRs) and to discover cosmogenic tau neutrinos (CTNs). The study of UHECRs and CTNs from space will yield orders-of-magnitude increase in statistics of observed UHECRs and the discovery of the cosmogenic flux of neutrinos for the full predicted range of UHECR models. These observations will solve the long-standing puzzle of the origin of the highest energy particle ever observed, providing a new window on the Universe and on its most energetic environments and events. The discovery of CTNs will help solve the puzzle of the origin of UHECRs and begin a new field of Astroparticle Physics with the study of neutrino properties at energies to the 10 EeV scale.
