Surveying the Large Magellanic Cloud – Cherenkov Telescope Array

One of CTA’s key targets will be the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). As a satellite of the Milky Way, the LMC is one of the closest galaxies. It is a unique galaxy hosting a variety of exceptional objects, including star-forming regions, star clusters, pulsar wind nebulae and supernova remnants. CTA will survey the LMC for several of its science objectives, including to gain insight into the transport of cosmic rays on large scales — from their release into the interstellar medium to their escape from the galaxy.
