Scrutiny of the large scale distribution of arrival directions of cosmic rays with energies above ~100 PeV is one important observable to provide key elements for understanding the end of Galactic cosmic rays, and for establishing at which energy the flux of extragalactic cosmic rays starts to dominate the cosmic ray energy spectrum. Using the large amount of data collected by the Pierre...

We propose an explanation for the origin of the observed cosmic ray anisotropies at multiple scales. We discuss its implications, and future perspectives.

The spectra of cosmic electrons and positrons should have contributions from known sources such as particles accelerated in supernova remnants and from interactions of cosmic and interstellar protons. Any evidence for an additional component, as reported by PAMELA, Fermi and HESS experiments, may carry hints of a new phenomenon. I will examine the implications of the recent detection of...
