World's largest gamma telescope to study cosmic rays from Siberia

Russia Today said:

A desolate site in Siberia will soon become the forefront of international research into the secrets of the Universe, after the world’s biggest gamma ray detection array scientists are creating there comes into operation.

The Tunka Valley, located in about 100km west of Lake Baikal, close to Russia’s border with Mongolia, is already operating a large-scale experiment studying cosmic rays and gamma rays.
