Since June 2008 two gamma-ray satellite experiments, AGILE and Fermi-LAT, have been in contemporaneous operation. Their results allow the study of gamma-ray astrophysics from space to enter in a new era. Starting from the heritage of the EGRET experiment, the science objectives of these two experiments are reviewed. The role of the technological improvement in such achievements is also briefly introduced.
