The Fermi Science Support Center (FSSC) runs the guest investigator program, creates and maintains the mission time line, provides analysis tools for the scientific community, and archives and serves the Fermi data. This web site is the portal to Fermi for all guest investigators.
Look into the "Resources" section for finding schedules, publications, useful links etc. The "Proposals" section is where you will be able to find the relevant information and tools to prepare and submit proposals for guest investigator projects. At "Data" you will be able to access the Fermi databases and find the software to analyse them. Address all questions and requests to the helpdesk in "Help".
We are pleased to announce that the dynamic content for the FSSC website has been restored. If you have any problems accessing the content, such as the monitored source list light curves or the mission timeline page please contact the FSSC help desk.
A minor data processing error affecting the GBM "CTIME" and "CSPEC" data types was recently identified. This problem was fixed in the processing pipeline on May 16, 2013. The data for the very bright event GRB 130427324 were reprocessed and redelivered on May 16 2013. For all other CTIME and CSPEC data prior to that date, the effect of the incorrect exposure on true count rates calculated from this exposure is expected to be negligible.
A record-setting blast of gamma rays from a dying star in a distant galaxy has wowed astronomers around the world. The eruption, which is classified as a gamma-ray burst, or GRB, and designated GRB 130427A, produced the highest-energy light ever detected from such an event.

NASA scientists don't often learn that their spacecraft is at risk of crashing into another satellite. But when Julie McEnery, the project scientist for NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, checked her email on March 29, 2012, she found herself facing this precise situation.
