A New Look At Our Gamma Universe Here's what the universe would look like if your eyes could see gamma rays. The Gamma-Ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST) showed off its abilities this week by taking this "full sky" gamma image in just 95 hours of observation time. NASA's new gamma telescope is ready to find all sorts of cool, exotic cosmic objects.The same day NASA released this image, they also renamed the GLAST, which is now the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope. It's named after Enrico Fermi - in the realm of high-energy physics, he's kind of a big deal. So what will the FGRS find? Hopefully, a better acronym. It will also spot radio quiet pulsars, supermassive black holes, and blazars, in addition to scanning the sky almost constantly so astronomers can see how gamma sources change over time. Blazars are, with a doubt, exceptionally awesome. Not only are they incredibly energetic and violent, they're called blazars . You can see one in the gamma image - it's the orange blob down and to left of the center. That brilliant orange and red line in the middle is the center of the Milky Way. The bright spot at the far right end of the Milky Way is the Vela Pulsar. Two more pulsars are visible at the extreme right of the image. It found all that in just 95 hours. Astronomers are eager to see what else it will detect. As for me, I'm off to create a comic book villain named Blazar. Image by: NASA. New Space Telescope Reveals Entire Gamma-ray Sky. [Science Daily]
