The Global Telescope Network (GTN) is an informal association of scientists, students, individuals and observatories interested in supporting the NASA Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (formerly GLAST), Swift, and XMM-Newton missions by obtaining and reducing ground-based observations for objects related to the primary science goals for these missions. The GTN website involves students, teachers, and amateur astronomers in cutting-edge astronomical research; contains activities and instructional materials for a range of levels and interests; and provides mentoring in research practices, telescope use, data analysis and educational resources for both partners (those with their own telescopes) and associates (those who wish to use a network telescope).
