600 Mysteries in the Night Sky

 

Written by Dauna Coulter
Science @ NASA

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – NASA’s Fermi team recently released the second catalog of gamma-ray sources detected by their satellite’s Large Area Telescope (LAT). Of the 1873 sources found, nearly 600 are complete mysteries. No one knows what they are.

“Fermi sees gamma rays coming from directions in the sky where there are no obvious objects likely to produce gamma rays,” says David Thompson, Fermi Deputy Project Scientist from Goddard Space Flight Center.

Gamma rays are by their very nature heralds of great energy and violence. They are a super-energetic form of light produced by sources such as black holes and massive exploding stars. Gamma-rays are so energetic that ordinary lenses and mirrors do not work. As a result, gamma-ray telescopes can’t always get a sharp enough focus to determine exactly where the sources are.
