Someone willing to update this article or the one for gamma rays may find this bulletin interesting: http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2005-12/nyu-pfe120905.php
The hyphen: gamma-ray vs gamma ray
Note that it is standard to hyphenate the adjective, but not the noun. Thus, "gamma-ray astronomy", but "high-energy gamma rays". (Similarly for X rays and cosmic rays, of course.) Wwheaton (talk) 08:32, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
Gamma-ray sensor technology
I took away the part of the introduction which was speaking about "incredible distances" since actually the gamma rays, due to the interaction with the Extra-Galactic Background Light are probably the kind of radiations that travels the shortest distance in the Universe and has therefore the shortest horizon.
- Gamma ray uses that terminology and so does [NASA] "can observe them from distances of billions of light-years"... I think that is an "incredible distance" and [Here] "The incredible distance to this burst exceeded our greatest expectations". - Pmedema (talk) 07:41, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
- How far gamma rays can travels depends largely on how energetic they are.
