Today’s paper takes a look at combined data from two different gamma-ray experiments in the search for the products of dark matter annihilation
Today’s paper explores the galactic homes of superluminous supernovae — some of the brightest explosions in our universe.
Millisecond pulsars may be responsible for the extra gamma rays near the Galactic Center. Why haven’t we detected more of them?
This month’s undergraduate research post features a student who modeled high-energy gamma-ray emission from the Fermi Bubbles at the center of the Milky Way. Read on to find out more!
If dark matter particles can collide to release gamma-rays, the best place to see them will be in the centers of dwarf galaxies. Archival Fermi-LAT images around Reticulum 2 show the first ever detection of gamma-rays from a dwarf galaxy. Dark matter detection may be close at hand!
For a few years now, excess emission of gamma-rays in the direction of the Galactic Center has puzzled scientists. In the paper we discuss today, the authors re-analyze data from the Fermi telescope to get new insights into the origin of this excess emission. They make the case for the signal being described by dark matter particles annihilating in the center of our Galaxy.
