Extreme Astronomical Objects Detected in Neighbouring Galaxy

By means of the H.E.S.S. gammy ray telescopes researchers have detected specifically energy-rich gamma ray sources in the Great Magellanic Cloud. A researcher team, among them the astro-particle physicist Olaf Reimer from Innsbruck University, reports in the special journal Science on the discovery of the first such object in a galaxy different from our own.

This International Year has been the initiative of a large consortium of scientific bodies together with UNESCO, and will bring together many different stakeholders including scientific societies and unions, educational institutions, technology platforms, non-profit organizations and private sector partners.

You can find all information on the International Year of Light on its website, where there is also a calendar of all pertinent events.

Scientific events concentrating on the physical aspects of light are presented on this website.
