Description

Dr. Michelson is the Principal Investigator of the Large Area Telescope on the Fermi Observatory.

The Large Area Telescope (LAT) on the Fermi Observatory scans the entire sky once every three hours.  It has revealed many types of high-energy sources including gamma-ray bursts, many types of pulsars, active galaxies, and binary systems.

In this talk Dr. Michelson will give an overview of Fermi’s discoveries and offer speculation of what might be found next, including possible sources of gravitational radiation.
