Description

The Pierre Auger Observatory is the largest cosmic ray detector ever built. It was designed to detect the highest energy particles in the Universe, and it has been taking data since 2004. Our published results range from the measurement of the flux suppression at the highest energies to limits on ultra high energy neutrinos, from limits on the flux of EeV neutrons from the galaxy to the measurement of the proton-proton cross section at 57 TeV center-of-mass energy. In this talk I will present the most recent results obtained with the Pierre Auger Observatory, and the physics motivation, potential for discoveries, and current status of the upgrades to the Observatory.
