Discovery of microquasar LS I + 61 303 at VHE gamma-rays with MAGIC

Abstract

Here we report the discovery of very high energy (> 100GeV) γ-ray emission from the radio emitting X-ray binary LS I +61 303 with the Major Atmospheric Gamma Imaging Cherenkov (MAGIC) telescope. This high energy emission has been found to be variable, detected 4 days after the periastron passage and lasting for several days. The data have been taken along… (More)
