Presentation Plenary Talks

Speaker

Dr Rolf Buehler (DESY)

Description

Our galaxy hosts a zoo of astronomical particle accelerators. In this presentation I will discuss recent gamma-ray observations of these sources and what they have told us about their inner workings. Among others, I will discuss recent observations of Super Novae Remnants and Pulsars. I will also talk about the increasing population of time variable gamma-ray sources, as Novae, Binary systems and the Crab nebula, which allow us to observe particle acceleration in real time.
