Recent Results in TeV Gamma-Ray Astronomy


The sky may not be falling, but it is considerably more crowded than it used to be. At energies >200 GeV, the source catalog has more than doubled in the last couple years thanks to observations made with a new generation of gamma-ray telescopes. These newly discovered sources fall within a broad variety of catagories: galactic and extragalactic, point-like and extended, predicted and serendipitous, well-known in other wavebands and yet to be defined. I'll present an overview of the new results and discuss some of the possible implications for future observations.
