The Fermi Science Support Center (FSSC) runs the guest investigator program, creates and maintains the mission time line, provides analysis tools for the scientific community, and archives and serves the Fermi data. This web site is the portal to Fermi for all guest investigators.
Look into the "Resources" section for finding schedules, publications, useful links etc. The "Proposals" section is where you will be able to find the relevant information and tools to prepare and submit proposals for guest investigator projects. At "Data" you will be able to access the Fermi databases and find the software to analyse them. Address all questions and requests to the helpdesk in "Help".
Fermi Observations for MW 672
Mission week 672 starts with a continuation of the symmetric rocking profile from the previous week. On day of year 105 (2021-04-15 ) at 01:23 there is a 10 minute freeze observation during which an updated symmetric profile is loaded. This profile continues until DOY 106 (2021-04-16) at 20:11 when there is a 10 minute freeze observation during which an asymmetric +50/-60 deg. profile is loaded. This profile continues until DOY 109 (2021-04-19) at 14:50 when there is another 10 minute freez observation during which a modified sine profile is loaded. This profile continues until the end of the week. Note that positive rock angles are south, and negative angles are north.
Owing to the severe weather situation and power outages in Texas and other areas NASA has decided to postpone the Fermi Cycle-14 proposal deadline until March 1, 2021, 16:30 EST. If you have already submitted a proposal you need not resubmit unless you wish to make changes which you may do up to the new deadline. Submission procedures are otherwise unchanged; refer to our website for details.
The deadline for Fermi Cycle 14 Guest Investigator proposals is coming soon: Feb 19 at 16:30 EST. To help you prepare your proposals, the project and science support center will host a virtual workshop to provide information about updates to the program (for example, preparing proposals for dual anonymous review) and to provide support for new proposers. Please register using this form by Feb 1 so that we can send you the details to join the virtual meeting.
On April 15, 2020, a brief burst of high-energy light swept through the solar system, triggering instruments on several NASA and European spacecraft. Now, multiple international science teams conclude that the blast came from a supermagnetized stellar remnant known as a magnetar located in a neighboring galaxy.
