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".
Fermi Observations for MW 435
Mission Week 435 starts with interleaved pointed observations at RA, dec = (227.3, -29.83) to provide coverage for TOO observations of Nova Lup 2016 with sky survey observations. A second survey profile is loaded on day 277 at 21:48. That sky survey, without pointed observations, starts at 22:30 and continues until the end of the week.
The FSSC is pleased to announce the availability of a version of the Fermi Science Tools that can be built from source on OS X 15.6 (el Capitan). This release is *only* for users with problems using the binary version of the tools on el Capitan. Users should be aware that this version of the tools does not support the ROOT or gtburst software.
Dark matter, the mysterious substance that constitutes most of the material universe, remains as elusive as ever. Although experiments on the ground and in space have yet to find a trace of dark matter, the results are helping scientists rule out some of the many theoretical possibilities. Three studies published earlier this year, using six or more years of data from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, have broadened the mission's dark matter hunt using some novel approaches.
