The LIP participates in the Pierre Auger Observatory, which studies the cosmic rays of extreme energies. These very rare particles (~ 1 / century / km ^ 2) collide with Earth's atmosphere producing gigantic particle showers that can be detected. The study of these particles allows to explore the most violent phenomena of the Universe. In addition, their interaction with the atmosphere occurs at energies well above those available at the LHC, providing a unique window to explore new physics on the scale of energy of 100 TeV. LIP participates in the Observatory covering a wide range of range of developments, from new detector concepts to complex data analyzes, and also the creation of theoretical models to characterize the physics of the shower.
