    Thanks n_FA. There was also a very interesting link about "the particle that broke the Cosmic Speed Limit".

    Yes. There is a thread here on the forum on that. I believe that refining the directionality of that hot spot and possibly uncovering other hot spots are possible aims of the balloon mission. After the incoming cosmic ray encounters the atmosphere the origin gets fuzzed out. A high altitude detection could get a much more specific location.
