The Transglobalcar expedition will perform the Northernmost measurement of cosmic radiation flow, and will be the very first to study the intensity of cosmic rays at the North Pole, where no published data exist.
The expedition will deploy a series of portable cosmic muon detectors on its vehicles, which use open source hardware and software. The first to join the trip on the leg to the North Pole is named Erebus
, after the glorious ship which took part in the Ross expedition to Antarctica in 1843. These detectors have been adapted to endure the environmental extremes encountered in the hottest and coldest parts of the world, promising unparalleled insights into cosmic ray activity throughout the expedition.
