Perhaps someday they will shed light on the secrets of dark matter and the lack of antimatter in the universe. One of the main problems in the theory of the origin of cosmic rays is the mechanism for their acceleration. In the sixties of the last century, theoretical physicists Vitaly Lazarevich Ginzburg and Sergei Ivanovich Syrovatsky (FIAN) assumed that cosmic rays can arise from explosions of supernovae.
