The High-Altitude Water Cherenkov Gamma-Ray Observatory (HAWC) in Mexico, built and operated by an international team of scientists, has captured the first wide-angle view of gamma rays emanating from two rapidly spinning stars. The results may cast serious doubt on one possible explanation for a mysterious excess of anti-matter particles near Earth.
