DescriptionFermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope
CommunityThe Fermi collaboration operates the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (FGST, formerly GLAST, Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope) on board of the Fermi satellite. The collaboration is international, composed of members of research institutions and universities of U.S.A, Italy, Germany, France, Sweden, and Japan. The satellite was launched from Cape Canaveral on June 11, 2008. On board of FGST there are two scientific experiments. The Large Area Telescope detects gamma-rays in the energy range from 20 MeV to 300 GeV, with very good position resolution (<10 arcmins), and an energy resolution in the range of 10%. Complementary, the GLAST Burst Monitor is sensitive in the range from 8 keV to 25 MeV. Together, they cover 25 octaves of the electromagnetic spectrum, with large angular acceptances. High energy gamma-rays are tracers of the most extreme environments in the universe. Objects on the list to study are: gamma-ray bursts, active galactic nuclei, solar flares, and pulsars, pulsar wind nebulae, and supernova remnants. Moreover, FGST could resolve the nature of dark matter, and is sensitive to effects proposed by theories extending the standard model of particle physics, like quantum-gravity.
Parent VO Sometimes a project grows large enough to include several offshoot projects in it. When this happens, such a VO would want to be its own registration but would want to cite the parent project on its registration. This item helps a VO manager make such a mapping. N/A
