The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA)

The CTA project is an initiative to build the next generation ground-based very high energy gamma-ray instrument. It will serve as an open observatory to a wide astrophysics community and will provide a deep insight into the non-thermal high-energy universe. A short movie outlining the envisaged arrays is available here. A recent special edition of the journal Astroparticle Physics focussed on CTA can be accessed here.
