Description: Direct experimental measurements of the inelastic cross sections of neutrons on a variety of nuclei have been made at Fermi lab over the energy range from 50 to 350 GeV. These data may be used, together with nucleon-nucleon total cross sections measured through the same energy range, to justify and verify the interpretation of cosmic ray data on interaction mean free paths in air or iron in terms of nucleon-nucleon total cross sections at much higher energies.
