The site of the future Cherenkov Telescope Array

The Cherenkov Telescope Array project selected a site within the Paranal Observatory grounds as its southern site in July 2015, subject to successful negotiations. The CTA project is an initiative to build the next generation of ground-based instruments designed for the detection of very high energy gamma-rays. Gamma rays are emitted by the hottest and most powerful objects in the Universe — such as supermassive black holes, supernovae and possibly remnants of the Big Bang. The array will provide valuable deeper insights into the high-energy Universe.
