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 631
Mission week 631 starts with a continuation of the +/- 50 deg symmetric profile from the end of the previous week. On DOY 184 at 01:00 UT there is a 10-minute freeze observation during which an updated +/- 50 deg profile is loaded. This profile continues until the end of the mission week. Note that positive rock angles are south, and negative rock angles are north.
The stage-I selection process for the Fermi Cycle-13 Guest Investigator program has been completed. There were a total of 41 new programs selected for stage-I out of 109 proposals submitted. A list of the selected programs, including the PIs, titles and abstracts is available on the FSSC web site.
We are pleased to announce the release of an incremental version (4FGL-DR2, for Data Release 2) of the fourth catalog of LAT sources, based on 10 years of survey data. It contains 5787 sources in the 50 MeV-1 TeV energy range. The catalog is provided as a FITS table, and it is accompanied by 7-bin spectral energy distributions and 1-year light curves as well as a document describing the details of the catalog preparation.

Unprecedented observations of a nova outburst in 2018 by a trio of satellites, including two NASA missions, have captured the first direct evidence that most of the explosion’s visible light arose from shock waves - abrupt changes of pressure and temperature formed in the explosion debris.
