Abstract / Description:MAGIC, the largest ground-based gamma ray telescope in the world, has been in scientific operation since
summer 2004. The major motivation of the MAGIC project is to study high energy phenomena in the
universe in the unexplored energy region between 10 GeV and 300 GeV. MAGIC-II, a two 17m telescope
system with advanced photon detectors and ultra fast readout, is designed to lower the threshold energy
further and to simultaneously achieve a higher sensitivity in the stereoscopic / coincidence operational mode.
The construction of the second telescope will be completed in 2007. This allows simultaneous observations
with the gamma ray satellite missions GLAST and AGILE with a sensitivity not achieved so far by ground-
based gamma ray telescopes.
