CTA: the next generation of air imaging Cherenkov telescopes
photon. The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) wil represent the third generation of such telescopes and aims at achieving full sky coverage with observatories in both hemispheres, covering four orders of magnitude in energy (10^10 eV a 10^14 eV, approximately), lowering the flux sensitivity by a factor 10 and operating with improved energy and angular resolutions. In this seminar we present the status of the project and discuss some of the physics/astrophysics topics to which the CTA is expected to bring a contribution in the near future.
