DISCOVERY OF TeV GAMMA-RAY EMISSION FROM TYCHO’S SUPERNOVA REMNANT
We report the discovery of TeV gamma-ray emission from the Type Ia supernova remnant (SNR) G120.1+1.4, known as Tycho's SNR. Observations performed in the period 2008-2010 with the VERITASExpand

Radio imaging of the very-high-energy gamma-ray emission region in the central engine of a radio galaxy.
The accretion of matter onto a massive black hole is believed to feed the relativistic plasma jets found in many active galactic nuclei (AGN). Although some AGN accelerate particles to energiesExpand
