Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope Tenth Anniversary

The exotic information that Fermi has gleaned from the gamma rays traveling from deep space have changed the way we've looked at the Cosmos. It is Fermi's tenth anniversary, and there is a Science Playoff allowing Fermi fans to vote for the best gathered science...

On Friday 3 August at 7:30pm, the Highland Road Park Observatory will present "Ten Years of Fermi". This talk will revisit the original concept, the man who had his name attached to the project and the awesome information revealed by the machine. Keep in mind, August 3rd is also the last day to vote in the mission's Science Playoff!

Tomorrow at 3:30pm in Nicholson 109, Dr. Michael Briggs of the University of Alabama-Huntsville will give a talk entitled "Terrestrial Gamma Flashes Observed by GBM". Briggs is the Deputy PI for Fermi's Gamma Burst Monitor, which has been used to detect Terrestrial Gamma-Ray Flashes in Earth thunderstorms.
