Fermi and Gamma Rays: A Cartoon Look

NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope detects gamma rays from exotic objects like black holes, neutron stars and fast-moving jets of gas. Launched in 2008, Fermi has seen some of the highest-energy bursts of light in the universe and is helping scientists understand where gamma rays come from.

These cartoons were created to dispel some of the myths about Fermi and gamma-rays.
