Fermi Gamma Ray Map

It seems to be everywhere on the web at the moment…

But it’s easy to see why!
First light from Fermi. A postcard of the Universe seen in gamma rays.
How cool is that?

    I’m kinda glad they renamed it, actually. GLAST just sounded silly to me. :)
    It’s a pretty impressive piece of equipment too from the sound of things. Apparently for this single first light image, Fermi recorded as much information as Compton used to record in a year!
    I can’t wait to see what they discover with this!

    Cool! I did not know they already had pictures done :) Though we got an institute-wide mail about the renaming…
