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 456
Mission week 456 continues the 50-degree sky-survey rocking profile. The week begins with a 10-minute inertial point observation during which a new survey profile is uploaded. There are no special observations during this week.
NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has found a signal at the center of the neighboring Andromeda galaxy that could indicate the presence of the mysterious stuff known as dark matter. The gamma-ray signal is similar to one seen by Fermi at the center of our own Milky Way galaxy.

The Fermi GBM team has provided a portable version of their response matrix generation software and associated calibration files. Previously, this was available to the public only via an interactive web interface. The response file generator facilitates production of response files for a GBM triggered event or for an arbitrary source location at an arbitrary time for each of the GBM detectors. The intent is to better facilitate studies such as candidate, non-triggered GRBs or solar flares, TGFs and searches for electromagnetic counterparts to gravitational waves. To obtain the software please visit the FSSC GBM data analysis web page.
An international science team says NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has observed high-energy light from solar eruptions located on the far side of the sun, which should block direct light from these events. This apparent paradox is providing solar scientists with a unique tool for exploring how charged particles are accelerated to nearly the speed of light and move across the sun during solar flares.
