The Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, formerly GLAST, will open this high-energy world to exploration and help us to answer these questions. With Fermi, astronomers will at long last have a superior tool to study how black holes, notorious for pulling matter in, can accelerate jets of gas outward at fantastic speeds.
Physicists will be able to study subatomic particles at energies far greater than those seen in ground-based particle accelerators. And cosmologists will gain valuable information about the birth and early evolution of the Universe.
Light, we all know it travels at well, the speed of light, or does it? When it comes to the structure of space and time, could light be the key to unlocking the final secrets of the universe?
Answers may lie in the journey of two photons across seven billion light years of space, recorded by the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope. And these
