The Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope was launched into the Earth orbit in June 2008 and is still in operation. The Large Area Telescope (LAT), which is the main instrument onboard the Fermi satellite, has provided an increasingly detailed portrait of the Universe's most extraordinary phenomena. The DAMPE satellite launched in 2015 is also monitoring the high energy gamma-ray sky. In this contribution the state of the art of the experimental research in the field of high-energy gamma-ray astrophysics will be presented and the perspective of the future missions in MeV--GeV and GeV--TeV ranges will be highlighted.
