How Can I Help
Armenia's Cosmic Ray Division?

Please read the possibilities below and then contact us with your suggestions of how you would like to participate.

The CRD's most urgent need is financial assistance to keep its Cosmic Ray and Solar Monitoring stations on Armenia's Mt. Aragats operational. Without these crucial data gathering facilities, the CRD will be unable to fulfill its international research obligations and will be ineligible for the significant financial grants it receives from its research partners around the world.
