Thirteen years of MAGIC.

  Venerdì 15/09   15:30 - 18:30   Aula A203   III - Astrofisica
The MAGIC telescopes have been observing very high-energy gamma rays (VHE; $E > 100$ GeV) from astronomical sources since 2004. In this talk I will describe the strategy of observation adopted by the MAGIC collaboration, which is divided into scheduled observations of pre-selected targets and external triggers from several facilities such as optical, gamma-ray, and neutrino telescopes. I will focus my review on the major recent discoveries in both the galactic and extragalactic domains, including the study of the emission from the galactic center and the first detection of VHE photons from a gravitationally lensed blazar. Latest findings from the MAGIC fundamental physics program will be also outlined. Finally, I will summarise the future perspective of the MAGIC experiment at the dawn of the CTA era.
