Cherenkov Telsecope Observatory
The CTA project is an initiative to build the world’s largest and most sensitive ground-based, very high-energy gamma-ray observatory. Over 1,000 scientists and engineers from 5 continents, 29 countries* and over 170 research institutes participate in the CTA project. CTA will serve as an open observatory to a wide astrophysics community and provide a deep insight into the non-thermal, high-energy universe. The CTA observatory will detect high- energy radiation with unprecedented accuracy and 10 times the sensitivity of current instruments, providing novel insights into some of the most extreme and violent events in the universe.
