    This is about half of the typical total natural radiation background. Muons (and other particles) are generated within a cone-shaped shower, with all particles staying within about 1 degree of the primary particle's path. M.

Having completed his Masters and Doctorate work at Harvard, he teaches physics, astrophysics and astronomy at Harvard. His latest book- Cosmic Evolution, The Rise of Complexity in Nature is an amazing work. It is not an easy read, especially for those who avoided science during their undergraduate ://
