The Extreme Energy Events Observatory: Status and perspectives.
Gnesi I. per la Collaborazione EEE
The Extreme Energy Events Observatory is an extended telescope array, covering more than 10 degrees in latitude and longitude. Telescopes are tracking detectors based on MRPCs technology with time resolution better than 200 ps. Its extension allows to study a wide range of cosmic-ray (CR) phenomena, from solar activity to high-energy CR while also addressing unprecedented topics such as the search for long-distance correlated showers. The Observatory is growing and has been regularly taking data since 2014, with a strong impact on science outreach by involving students and teachers of the high schools in a real big-size CR experiment.
