Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope

Fermi Fridays

Welcome to Fermi Fridays! As we celebrate Fermi's 10 years in space, Friday has become our special day. Every Friday, we'll discuss a topic having to do with the facinating science Fermi is doing, the technology that has been developed to make Fermi more productive, the amazing people that make it all happen, and the many ways that Fermi has inspired others.

We hope you'll check in each week as we unveil a new Fermi Fridays topic. And you can always follow us on social media to get the latest from the Fermi 10-year celebration!

We are keeping an archive of the previous Fermi Fridays in case you've missed any.

Septembers's Topic: Gamma Rays from the Sun

Find out about how Fermi has improved our understanding of how the Sun can accelerate particles, producing bright and long-lived gamma-ray emission.
Fermi's Large Area Telescope (LAT) observes continuous emission of gamma rays from two of our closest and most familiar celestial objects. Find out more about what causes this high-energy glow.
Most of what the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) sees comes from the Sun.
