One of 200 mirror cells for the CTA; the largest gamma ray telescope to be produced.”The CTA captures gamma ray energy, the most powerful in the universe. Until now, such telescopes have only been able to map 10 percent of the sky along this wavelength. The CTA will offer 10 times more precision than current instruments, and aims to investigate the origin of cosmic rays, the composition of dark matter, and some of the most violent objects in the universe, such as black holes."

High Pressure Research Lab; where you squash things...

Where you freeze things...
