The entire gamma-ray astronomy
community is currently preparing HESS's successor, the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), a planned observatory that will be even more sensitive and based at two sites, one in the northern hemisphere and the other in the southern hemisphere.

3C 279 holds a special place in the history of gamma-ray astronomy
. During a flare in 1991 detected by the EGRET instrument on NASA's then recently launched Compton Gamma Ray Observatory (CGRO), which operated until 2000, the galaxy set the record for the most distant and luminous gamma-ray source known at the time.

Piro and Harrison presented their teams' findings April 4 at a meeting on gamma-ray astronomy
On a grander scale, the remarkable developments of neutrino and gamma-ray astronomy
have to show new telescopes and detector facilities like the ground-based observatory for gamma-ray astronomy
named Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), the Ice-Cube neutrino observatory at the South Pole, and the KM3NeT at the Mediterranean Sea.
