Gamma-rays represent the most energetic electromagnetic window for the study of the Universe. They are studied both from space at MeV and GeV energies, with instruments like the Fermi γ-ray Space Telescope, and at TeV energies with ground based instruments profiting of particle cascades in the atmosphere and of the Čerenkov radiation of charged particles in the air or in water. The Milagro gamma-ray observatory represented the first instrument to successfully implement the water Čerenkov technique for γ-ray astronomy, opening the ground for the more sensitive HAWC γ-ray observatory, currently under development in the Sierra Negra site and already providing early science results.
