Abstract : The cosmic radiation that reaches the earth is inversely correlated with solar activity as represented by the sunspot number. Thus one of the longest solar-terrestrial data records (solar data) has been combined with one of the shortest data records (cosmic radiation) to learn more about the cosmic radiation that reaches the earth's environment. A brief summary of solar and cosmic radiation data records and several interesting scientific results that have been found with these data are presented. Solar activity, Solar-Terrestrial physics, Cosmic radiation, Sunspot numbers, Solar-terrestrial data.
