Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope

Tooning the Extreme Cosmos

The Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope and the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) proudly present a series of short animations that explore some of the fascinating discoveries made by Fermi through the lens of art. Each animation will be introduced by a scientific expert in the field. At the end of the event, there will be an opportunity to ask questions to both the scientists and the artists who participated in this endeavour. For questions, please contact us.
