Cosmic rays may provide opportunities for probing fundamental physics. For example, ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays might originate from the decays of metastable heavy particles, and astrophysical γ-rays can be used to test models of quantum gravity. Both scenarios offer ways to avoid the GZK cut-off.
