Abstract [en]

The Extreme-Energy Cosmic Rays (EECR), with energy above 5.10(19) eV, are very interesting objects to study that can provide new information about our universe. At the same time EECRs are exceptionally challenging to study because they are so rare. To obtain a reasonably large statistical sample, the JEM-EUSO collaboration aims to place a telescope into space. Various technologies are being developed and studied to achieve this goal. Several pathfinders are used for validation and testing. In particular, during 2017 a long-duration super-pressure balloon flight will observe the first high energy cosmic rays from above using the fluorescence technique, and a small test unit, Mini-EUSO, will be sent to ISS to measure the UV-background from Earth night side. In addition, these missions will provide various scientific results.
