Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope

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.

This view shows the entire sky at energies greater than 1 GeV based on five years of data from the LAT instrument on NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope. Brighter colors indicate brighter gamma-ray sources.

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 646

Mission week 646 starts with a continuation of the +/- 50 deg. rocking profile from the previous week. On day of year 289 (2020-10-15) at 01:04 UTC 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.

NASA Missions Explore a 'TIE Fighter' Active Galaxy

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.
