Abstract
AGILE is an Italian Space Agency (ASI) mission devoted to $\gamma$-ray astrophysics in the 30 MeV - 50 GeV energy range, with simultaneous X-ray imaging capability in the 18-60 keV band. Launched in April 2007, the AGILE satellite has completed its tenth year of operations in orbit with all detectors operating nominally. The small high-tech jewel, designed for an operative life of only two years, continues its mission with high efficiency, and it is substantially contributing to improve our knowledge of the high-energy sky. We present an overview of the main AGILE $\gamma$-ray satellite scientific results and discoveries.
