Fermi Science Support Center

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.

This view shows the entire sky at energies greater than 1 GeV based on five years of data from the LAT instrument on NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope. Brighter colors indicate brighter gamma-ray sources.

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 378

This week continues the 50-degree sky-survey rocking profile. The week begins with a continuation segment of the previous week’s sky-survey profile. The new survey profile is uploaded during a short (10 minute) inertial point observation at 2015-239-00:33:00. There are no special observations scheduled during this week.

Fermi-LAT Data Issue

There was a small glitch in Fermi-LAT data processing that has caused problems with a small amount of LAT data. This involved a problem with the detector calibration constants used in the LAT data processing pipeline that affected all the data corresponding to UTC 2015-07-27 19:04:46.642804 to 2015-07-30 11:03:18.085494.

NASA's Fermi Sees Record Flare from a Black Hole in a Distant Galaxy

Five billion years ago, a great disturbance rocked a region near the monster black hole at the center of galaxy 3C 279. On June 14, the pulse of high-energy light produced by this event finally arrived at Earth, setting off detectors aboard NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope and other satellites. Astronomers around the world turned instruments toward the galaxy to observe this brief but record-setting flare in greater detail.
