IPMU Colloquium

Speaker: Roger Blandford (KIPAC (Stanford U))
Title: Fermi's Restless Universe
Date (JST): Fri, Jun 18, 2010, 13:30 - 14:30
Place: Lecture Hall
Abstract: Launched just over 2 years ago, Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope continues to perform beyond expectation and generate new discoveries involving pulsars, gamma ray bursts, active galactic nuclei (including our own), supernova remnants, binary stars, normal galaxies and novae. It has also contributed to physics through setting limits on dark matter annihilation and Lorentz invariance violation and potentially through helping establish a pulsar timing array with which to seek long wavelength gravitational radiation. These topics and some future prospects will be reviewed.
