Abstract / Description:Gamma rays have become an important tracer for non-thermal high-energy processes in the Universe. They penetrate the whole Universe without significant absorption and, traveling along straight lines, transport information about high energy interactions from distant sites and extreme energetic objects or events to the observer. The current status of gamma ray astronomy is illustrated and the potential of planned missions is outlined.
