Abstract

The study of γ rays is fundamental for our understanding of the universe: γ rays probe the most energetic phenomena occurring in nature, and several signatures of new physics are associated with the emission of γ rays. The main science objectives and the status of the new generation high-energy gamma-ray astrophysics experiment AGILE are presented.
