Understanding the Origin and Impact of Relativistic Cosmic Particles with Very-High-Energy Gamma-rays
This white paper briefly summarizes the importance of the study of relativistic cosmic rays, both as a constituent of our Universe, and through their impact on stellar and galactic evolution. The focus is on what can be learned over the coming decade through ground-based gamma-ray observations over the 20 GeV to 300 TeV range.
