Abstract

A new gamma ray observation project with the balloon borne emulsion chambers is presented. New technique based on the accelerator emulsion experiments was implemented for studying high energy stellar objects with cosmic gamma rays. This paper provides the concept of this project and the current status as well as some results of test experiments.
