Nanoparticles show promise as inexpensive, durable and effective scintillators
A team of industrial and university researchers has shown that nanoparticles with sizes smaller than 10 nanometers - approximately the width of a cell membrane - can be successfully incorporated into scintillation devices capable of detecting and measuring a wide energy range of X-rays and gamma rays emitted by nuclear materials.  View News Article (2013-03-26)

Possible Origin of Cosmic Rays Revealed with Gamma Rays
An international team of astronomers (including the UK) has produced the first ever image of an astronomical object using high energy gamma rays, helping to solve a 100 year old mystery - an origin of cosmic rays. Their research, published in the Journal Nature on November 4th, was carried out using the High Energy Stereoscopic System (H.E.S.S.), an array of four telescopes, in Namibia,...

VERITAS detects gamma rays from galaxy halfway across the visible universe
In April 2015, after traveling for about half the age of the universe, a flood of powerful gamma rays from a distant galaxy slammed into Earth's atmosphere.  View News Article (2015-12-16)

Physicists find evidence for highest energy photons ever detected from Milky Way's equator
Physicists at nearly a dozen research institutions, including New York University, have discovered evidence for very high energy gamma rays emitting from the Milky Way, marking the highest energies ever detected from the galactic equator. View News Article (2005-12-14)

Gamma rays from galactic center could be evidence of dark matter
Gamma-ray photons seen emanating from the center of the Milky Way galaxy are consistent with the intriguing possibility that dark-matter particles are annihilating each other in space, according to research submitted by UC Irvine astrophysicists to the American Physical Society journal Physical Review D. View News Article (2012-08-14)

Searching the heavens
A new space mission, due to launch this month, is going to shed light on some of the most extreme astrophysical processes in nature - including pulsars, remnants of supernovae, and supermassive black holes. View News Article (2008-05-01)

Integral identifies supernova rate for Milky Way
Using ESA's Integral observatory, an international team of researchers has been able to confirm the production of radioactive aluminium (Al 26) in massive stars and supernovae throughout our galaxy and determine the rate of supernovae-one of its key parameters. View News Article (2006-01-09)

ESA steps towards a great black hole census
Astronomers using ESA's orbiting gamma-ray observatory, Integral, have taken an important step towards estimating how many black holes there are in the Universe. View News Article (2006-09-08)

Astronomers find first ever gamma ray clock
Astronomers using the H.E.S.S. telescopes have discovered the first ever modulated signal from space in Very High Energy Gamma Rays - the most energetic such signal ever observed. View News Article (2006-11-28)

High-energy astrophysics puzzle
Blazars are the brightest of active galactic nuclei, and many emit very high-energy gamma rays. New observations of a blazar known as PKS 1424+240 show that it is the most-distant known source of very high-energy gamma rays. But its emission spectrum appears highly unusual.  View News Article (2013-04-24)
