Welcome to the homepage of the Very High Energy (VHE) Gamma Ray Astronomy Group based at the University of Durham, UK.
The group investigates into the sources of gamma rays coming from objects far out in space such as neutron stars, white dwarfs, pulsars, X-ray binary systems, supernova remnants and active galactic nuclei.
At various times during the 80's and 90's the group operated telescopes in the USA, the Canary Islands and Australia. The group is now part of the H.E.S.S. (High Energy Stereoscopic System) collaboration, which operates an array of telescopes in Namibia. This facility allows us to study gamma ray astrophysics to greater precision than ever before.
