Photo taken on July 2, 2019 shows the ASgamma experiment in Yangbajain, southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region. A joint research team made up of Chinese and Japanese scientists has discovered the highest energy cosmic gamma rays ever observed from an observatory in Tibet, opening a new window to explore the extreme universe.

The left figure shows the Tibet ASgamma experiment observed the highest energy gamma rays beyond 100 Teraelectron volts (TeV)from the Crab Nebula with low background noise, the cross mark indicates the Crab pulsar position.

The figure shows an event display of the observed 449TeV photon-like air shower. (Photo/IHEP)

The China-Japan collaboration placed new water Cherenkov-type muon detectors under the existing cosmic-ray air-shower array in 2014. These underground muon detectors can suppress 99.92% of cosmic-ray background noise. (Photo/IHEP)
