Gamma-Ray Astronomy From Balloons and Satellites (Invited Paper)

  • R. K. Sood (a1)

Abstract

Gamma-ray astronomy has traditionally been a difficult field of research due to the low fluxes from astronomical objects and the inherently poor angular response of detectors. Progress made in the field in the last twenty years is reviewed. Many major astrophysical problems can only be addressed with the future operation of more sensitive satellite experiments. Recent gamma-ray observations of the supernova SN1987 a are briefly discussed.
