The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) will be the major global observatory for very high-energy (VHE) gamma-ray astronomy over the next decade and beyond. Covering a photon energy range from 20 GeV to 300 TeV, CTA will have a wider field-of-view, higher sensitivity, and better angular resolution than any instrument that has gone before. Its two arrays will have unprecedented capability for surveys, imaging of gamma-ray sources and time-domain astrophysics. CTA’s science remit is wide. While the early science will come from the Key Science Projects, the observatory will be operated as an open, proposal-driven observatory, with all data available on a public archive after a proprietary period. In addition, data will be taken regularly as part of multiwavelength/multimessenger ToO campaigns. UK scientists are not only helping to build CTA but also helping to define its scientific programme: join us for the CTA-UK Science Meeting and find out what CTA can do for you!
