Description

The MAGIC Collaboration is integrated by 20 research institutes and university departments from Armenia, Bulgaria, Finland, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain, Switzerland and USA. The collaboration comprises two 17m diameter telescopes, located at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory, designed to measure the Cherenkov radiation associated with atmospheric showers from very high-energy gamma rays.

CTA is a major international collaboration for building two large Cherenkov observatories at North and South Hemispheres. Roque de los Muchachos Observatory in La Palma has been selected to host the Northern observatory. The first large size telescope was inaugurated in October 2018, and we are presently building the other three.
