Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope

Painting the Sky in Gamma Rays

Celebrating 10 Years of the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope

The Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope and the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) proudly present the world premiere of the animated short "Fermi 10x10" and a series of short animations that explore some of the fascinating discoveries made by Fermi through the lens of art. The presentations will be curated by a scientist as well as an animator. 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 endeavor. The animations were created by students from the MICA Astro-Animation class. For questions, please contact us.
