NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope is making some exciting discoveries about cosmic rays and the Large Area Telescope aboard Fermi is the tool in this investigation.
Back in June 1991, just before the launch of NASA's Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory, astronomers knew of gamma rays from exactly one galaxy beyond our own.
An international team of astronomers has used a U.S.
An international team of astronomers has used the worldâ€™s biggest radio telescope to look deep into the brightest galaxies that NASAâ€™s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope can see. The study solidifies the link between an active galaxyâ€™s gamma-ray emissions and its powerful radio-emitting jets.
A new map combining nearly three months of data from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope is giving astronomers an unprecedented look at the high-energy cosmos.
GREENBELT, Md., March 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new map combining nearly three months of data from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope is giving astronomers an unprecedented look at the high-energy cosmos.
NASA's newest observatory, the Gamma-Ray Large Area Space Telescope, or GLAST, has begun its mission of exploring the universe in high-energy gamma rays.
Several bases of operations for NASA's Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST) are gearing up for data from the recently launched satellite.
The U.S. space agency says its newest space telescope, the Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope, or GLAST, is in the process of being activated. The Delta II rocket carrying GLAST lifted off June 11 from launch pad 17-B at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
Less than a week after launch, NASA's Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope, or GLAST, is safely up-and-running well in orbit approximately 350 miles (565 kilometers) above Earth's surface.
