SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Cosmic ray researcher Eugene Loh, known for his work with the Fly’s Eye observatory in Utah’s western desert, died of renal cancer May 26 at his home in Arlington. He was 72.

Mr. Loh was a University of Utah distinguished professor emeritus of physics and worked on detecting ultra high-energy cosmic rays.

He joined the university in 1975 and worked with a team to create a prototype cosmic ray detector.

The results were promising and the university was able to get $3 million to build the Fly’s Eye network of cosmic ray detectors at the Army’s Dugway Proving Ground.
