Love for an Unconventional Telescope
November 18, 2016
I am a postdoc at Los Alamos National Lab and I study the sky that our eyes can't see--the gamma-ray sky. These are the highest energy photons known and come from some of the coolest most extreme cosmic processes. I work with the High Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) Telescope, which doesn't look like a conventional telescope. But this is what you need to "see" gamma rays.
