Why do charged particles from outer space, called cosmic rays, strike Earth more frequently at the poles than at the equator?

Near the poles the magnetic field of Earth points almost straight downward (or straight upward), in the direction (or opposite to the direction) the charges are moving. As a result, there is little or no magnetic force exerted onthe charged particles at the pole to deflect them away from Earth.

Cosmic sun light are high energy contaminants, primarily while it began with space, beyond your Sun system.
