"If there's one theme that has played itself out over and over in astronomy, it's the fact that whenever scientists open a new window on our Universe, or bring about major upgrade in instrumentation; a period of remarkable discoveries are bound to follow...Explore Videos: GLAST Satellite Unwrapped for the Holidays
We can expect the same for GLAST." Robert Naeye

Article excerpt: #
"Various orbiting and ground-based observatories have opened up almost the entire electromagnetic spectrum, with unexpected discoveries coming with almost every step. But the gamma-ray spectrum from 10 to 100 gigaelectronvolts (GeV) is virtually unexplored. GLAST's primary science instrument, the Large Area Telescope (LAT), will fill in that gap." #
The EGRET instrument on NASA’s Compton Gamma-ray Observatory saw hints of interesting and unexpected phenomena in that high-energy range, but GLAST will provide our first detailed look at that window. Expect a wealth of discoveries, and some big surprises, from GLAST!" Opening New Windows!And as was mentioned here: 2007 was a 'Out of this World' Year!
NASA continues to exceeded their goals on a quest toward improving quality of life... On Earth, etc! :D
This Great NASA Video (from the past) shares their enthusiasm and International Cooperation!
Meanwhile...Shuttle Team to Modify Fuel Sensors; so, postponement of early Jan. launch/ shipment of the UK -LAB)... And, as to be expected, success of the Mission out-weighs the Calendar... More about the EuTEF platform (lab) European Space Agency's (ESA) Columbus laboratory
NOTE: DO NOT vote for Leaders that represent groups who are intimidated by the crucial discoveries that will be made as a result of these Missions! They need your money to pay 'unrelated' salaries! But the World needs the facts, in order to accurately address climate!
