It's been an amazing 10 years in space for Fermi, with groundbreaking discoveries from all across the universe. Fermi's multinational team includes scientists in the USA, Italy, France, Germany, Japan, Sweden, and many other countries. It also includes the mission operations team, software engineers, data scientists and administrators that work in the background to keep everything running smoothly.
After 57,264 orbits, 3,579 days in space, 3,187 publications, 214 automatic repoints, 118 TOOs, and four Rossi prizes, it's time for us to give back to our fans. We want to say "Thanks!" to all of you who think Fermi is as awesome as we do!
Help us celebrate Fermi's 10th birthday by sending Fermi a birthday card! If we receive it by our launch anniversary on June 11th 2018, we'll send back one of these handsome thank you cards, signed by one of the members of the Fermi team. You'll also get a special 10-year anniversary Fermi mission sticker.
Your birthday card will be included as part of our launch anniversary celebration. This is your chance to tell the world how much Fermi means to you. Don't hold back!
