What is the universe made of? We only know a tiny fraction — 4 percent — of the answer. From our little corner of the cosmic map, how do we know what else is out there?

Veronica Bindi explains how cosmic rays transmit information about our universe from the great beyond.
And they’re off! A beautiful early-morning launch carrying Expedition 41 to the International Space Station. They should be in orbit in just a few minutes.
