Current hypotheses of gamma-ray burst origin are analysed. About 30 years after their discovery, it is still unclear where gamma-ray bursts are created (Solar system, Galaxy or Metagalaxy). Nor is the mechanism of their production known. This paper reviews on-going gamma-ray experiments and suggests possible lines of further studies on their origin.
