      Astronomy plays a major role in the scientific landscape of Namibia and Southern Africa. Considerable progress has been achieved scientifically as well as in terms of human capacity development in the field. In all wavelength regimes accessible with ground-based instruments, the largest of those instruments are situated in Southern Africa: MeerKAT, the Southern African Large Telescope, .

    A gamma ray, or gamma radiation (symbol γ or), is a penetrating electromagnetic radiation arising from the radioactive decay of atomic consists of the shortest wavelength electromagnetic waves and so imparts the highest photon energy. Paul Villard, a French chemist and physicist, discovered gamma radiation in while studying radiation emitted by radium. Gamma-ray astronomy is the astronomical observation of gamma rays, the most energetic form of electromagnetic radiation, with photon energies above ion below keV is classified as X-rays and is the subject of X-ray astronomy.. In most known cases, gamma rays from solar flares and Earth's atmosphere are generated in the MeV range, but it is now known that gamma rays in the GeV.

    A new (page) catalog of short, free, astronomy videos, organized to go with each chapter of the OpenStax Astronomy textbook (or any other textbook or syllabus).   The status of experimental TeV gamma ray astronomy is summarized, with emphasis on the newer results, which include the first image of a supernova shell with resolved morphology and the detection of the Galactic Centre region as a TeV source. A puzzle remains that a number of seemingly established southern TeV sources could not be confirmed in recent observations by the new H.E.S.S. .

Gamma ray Astronomy Book Summary: The recent launch of NASA's Gamma-Ray Observatory will increase interest in gamma-ray astronomy. This is a fully up-dated new edition of the authors' earlier volume published in and covers both the background science and the current state-of.

In order to project forward 20 years a long base line is needed. Exactly 20 years ago, shortly after SAS-2 context and status of gamma-ray astronomy book in the lead up to the Cos-B flight, the June Eslab Symposium was dedicated to "The context and status of gamma-ray astronomy" and Cited by: 1.

In the first part, the book gives an up-to-date summary of the observational data. In the second part, it deals with the kinetic description of cosmic ray plasma. The underlying diffusion-convection transport equation, which governs the coupling between cosmic rays and the background plasma, is derived and analyzed in detail.

(Eds.) Free PreviewBrand: Springer Netherlands. Gamma-rays coming from space are mostly absorbed by the Earth's gamma-ray astronomy could not develop until it was possible to get our detectors above all or most of the atmosphere, using balloons or spacecraft.

The first gamma-ray telescope carried into orbit, on the Explorer XI satellite inpicked up fewer than cosmic gamma-ray photons. The final chapter presents a short summary of the contemporary status of TeV gamma-ray n predominantly from a historical perspective, the author guides readers through many decades of instrumental development and evolution, using only minimal mathematical background.

A distinguishing feature of a gamma-ray binary is that emission above 1 MeV dominates its spectral energy distribution (see example in Fig. 2), disregarding the black-body-like component from the companion r distinguishing feature of the gamma-ray binaries listed in Table 1 is that they all have variable gamma-ray emission, sometimes modulated on the orbital period.

Astronomy is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of one- or two-semester introductory astronomy courses. The book begins with relevant scientific fundamentals and progresses through an exploration of the solar system, stars, galaxies and cosmology.

The Astronomy textbook builds student understanding through the use of relevant analogies, clear and non-technical. This is the most complete, comprehensive, and up-to-date monograph on the physics of gamma-ray bursts, by one of the leading experts in the field, which will be an invaluable resource both for the advanced researchers and for those wishing to gain an overview of one of the most exciting topics in contemporary astrophysics.'.

Abstract: This article reviews the present status of high energy gamma-ray astronomy at energies above 30 MeV. Observations in the past decade using both space- and ground-based experiments have been primarily responsible for giving a tremendous boost to our knowledge of the high energy Universe.

This article summarizes the status of gamma-ray observations from space; it is the write-up of a rapporteur talk given at the 34th ICRC in The Hague, The Netherlands. The primary instrument used in the presented studies is the Large Area Telescope on-board the Fermi Spacecraft, which images the whole gamma-ray sky at photon energies between Beyond that, the workshop encompassed the latest developments and trends in theory and observation of cosmic gamma-ray sources of all energies, from nuclear gamma-ray lines in the MeV-region, through the Bremsstrahlung, Inverse Compton, and pion decay continuum emission, to gamma-rays due the decay of exotic relics from the early Universe.

The field of gamma-ray astronomy has experienced impressive progress over the last decade. Thanks to the advent of a new generation of imaging air Cherenkov telescopes (H.E.S.S., MAGIC, VERITAS) and thanks to the launch of the Fermi-LAT satellite, several thousand gamma-ray sources are known today, revealing an unexpected ubiquity of particle acceleration processes in the.

Gamma-ray astronomy / Astronomie des rayons gamma. My purpose here is to provide a brief review of the current status of gamma-ray emission from binaries, in the context of related objects where similar mechanisms are at work (pulsar wind nebulae, active galactic nuclei, supernova remnants).

Gamma-ray studies are an essential tool in our search for the origin of cosmic rays. Instruments like the Fermi-LAT, H.E.S.S., MAGIC and VERITAS have revolutionized our understanding of the high energy Universe. This paper describes the status of the very rich field of gamma-ray astrophysics that contains a wealth of data on Galactic and extragalactic particle accelerators.

It is the. Very High Energy Gamma-Ray Astronomy is written at the graduate or, perhaps, senior-undergraduate level. It is also a useful text for experimentalists, observers, and theorists.

The book contains no worked problems, and readers desiring such will need to seek other sources to complement this text. Because it is not heavily imbued with mathematical developments, the text is extremely digestible.

Very High Energy Gamma-Ray Astronomy summarizes the status of gamma-ray astronomy at energies between 30MeV and 50TeV at a critical point in the development of the discipline: the hiatus between the demise of the EGRET telescope and the launch of the next generation of space telescopes.

Starting with an overview of the astrophysics of the. A dynamic art program includes numerous radio, infrared, ultraviolet, X-ray, and gamma-ray images and transparent full-color overlays. The book presents scientific literacy in the context of astronomy, with the aim of teaching studentsto think critically and analytically about the physical world and the development of science.

VHE gamma-ray telescopes have been in operation over the last 30 years, but the flux sensitivity has not improved by more than a factor of ten over this time; this contrasts sharply with developments in most other disciplines. It is in this context that the status of TeV gamma-ray astronomy as of May, is reviewed below.

2. Relevant phenomena include supernova explosions, gamma ray bursts, quasars, blazars, pulsars, and cosmic microwave background radiation. Cosmology is a branch of astronomy concerned with the studies of the origin and evolution of the universe, from the .The last major conference on infrared astronomy was the IAU Symposium No.

96 in June Since then, the discipline has continued to mature and to contribute to all branches of astrophysics. One particular area of growth has been in spectroscopic capabilities at all infrared wavelengths.
