The HEASARC welcomes your participation in a brief survey
to capture how users access and utilize HEASARC data, software, and services. The outcome(s) of this survey will be used to guide, prioritize, and plan our activities and development in the coming years. It contains 18 questions, generally takes just a few minutes to complete, and your answers will remain totally anonymous. We thank you in advance for your valuable feedback.
Fermi Fridays - November
In addition to all the sources Fermi detects, the gamma-ray sky is filled with a diffuse glow from cosmic ray interactions with gas and dust between stars.
It's important to disentangle the diffuse interstellar emission from gamma-ray sources inside and outside of our Galaxy in order to find and accurately characterize them. Here's how we construct those maps.
Fermi revealed gigantic faint structures in the diffuse interstellar emission. This discovery and its relation to the Microwave Haze give us unique insight into the history of the Milky Way.
Over the last 10 years Fermi has revealed fascinating structures in the gamma-ray sky by collecting one photon at a time, now with >300 million and counting. We visualize how counting photons reveals sources and structures by representing Fermi photons with LEGO.
Scientists have lots of ways of being creative, including creating their favorite NASA mission in LEGO. Check out how LEGO Fermi came together.
