Massive catalog issued exuding high energy gamma ray sources galaxy as The HESS international alliance to which CNRS and CEA bestow has published the outcome of fifteen years of gamma ray surveillance of the Milky Way. Its telescopes positioned in Namibia have explored populations of pulsar wind nebulae and supernova remnants, as well as microquasars, were never found by gamma rays.

These educations are augmented by exact measurements like those of the dispersed emission at the galaxy’s center. The whole data set will from now onwards perform as a citation for the international scientific community.

In the universe, cosmic ray particles are expedited by galaxy clusters, supernovae, binary stars, pulsars and specific types of supermassive black holes. Through a dismally comprehended apparatus they accomplish very high energies, made perceptible by the release of gamma rays. Upon reaching the earth’s atmosphere, these gamma rays are absorbed, emanating a temporary shower of secondary particles that exude weak flashes of bluish light known as Cherenkov radiation, lasting just a few billionths of a second.

To examine these exceptionally short flashes, and consequently gamma ray emissions that fourteen countries for the organization configured the HESS array, the world’s largest gamma ray observatory in Namibia in 2002. The huge mirrors of the five telescopes gather Cherenkov radiation and display it onto exceptionally fragile cameras. Each image offers the direction of the oncoming gamma ray photon, and the quantity of light gathered furnishes instructions about its energy.
