Latest Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope Stories
NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope is new and improved, and ready to start sending back some images of high-energy light mysteriously produced above thunderstorms.
NASA has released a new image of the Cygnus OB2 star cluster, detailing its structure and evolution.
Astronomers have made the most accurate measurement of starlight in the universe and have used this to establish the total amount of light from all of the stars that have ever shone.

The search for dark matter runs deep with physicists Blas Cabrera and Bernard Sadoulet, who have chased this mystery far underground and will be recognized for their work as joint recipients of the 2013 W.K.H. Panofsky Prize in Experimental Particle Physics.
Scientists have long believed that spacetime is foamy, like a freshly pulled draft beer, but new information from an intergalactic photo finish shows it might just be as smooth as a single malt whiskey, instead.
Gamma-ray photons seen emanating from the center of the Milky Way galaxy are consistent with the intriguing possibility that dark-matter particles are annihilating each other in space.
