Today’s Video of the Day from NASA celebrates ten years of revolutionary discovery from the agency’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, which was launched on June 11, 2018.
The satellite is designed to detect and map gamma rays, which are produced by the hottest and most energetic objects in the entire universe, such as neutron stars and supernova explosions.
Fermi has mapped these explosive events over the last decade, observing over 2,300 gamma-ray bursts.
