Abstract:
High-energy astroparticle physics has moved to a level of new quality during the last decade.
Gamma-ray astronomy has paved the way, with thousands of sources detected from satellites and around 150 from ground, providing fantastic new insights but also leaving many unsolved questions;
neutrino astronomy has provided evidence for extra-terrestrial neutrinos at the TeV to PeV scale, with unknown origin;
cosmic-ray detectors confirmed the cut-off in the energy spectrum around 100 EeV, but its origin is still debated, and has not obtained clear evidence for individual sources. In addition,
gravitational wave detectors have increased their visible volume by a factor of 1000 and may open a new observational window in the next two years.
