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 642
Mission week 642 starts with a continuation of the symmetric +/- 50 deg. rocking profile from the previous week. On day of year 261 (2020-09-017) at 01:42 there is a 10 minute freeze observation during which an updated symmetric +/- 50 deg. rocking profile is loaded. This profile continues until the end of the week. Note that positive rock angles are south, and negative angles are north.
The LAT instrument has resumed collection of science data following an outage on September 17 to recover from a reboot of one of the onboard processors. The LAT was not collecting science data for 11 hours between 9:28 UTC and 20:28 UTC.
Not so long ago, astronomers mapped a galaxy far, far away using radio waves and found it has a strikingly familiar shape. In the process, they discovered the object, called TXS 0128+554, experienced two powerful bouts of activity in the last century.
