The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) Southern Site

The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) is the next-generation ground-based instrument designed to detect very high energy gamma rays, with sites in both the southern and northern hemispheres. Gamma rays are electromagnetic radiation of a very high energy, emitted by the hottest and most extreme objects in the Universe — supermassive black holessupernovae and maybe even remnants of the Big Bang.
