The members of the Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Team of the National Space Science and Technology Center "are actively involved in several projects which are designed to investigate the high energy regime of our Solar System and Universe." The site provides extensive information on the scientific goals, features, and technical equipment of the Gamma-Ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST) scheduled to launch in 2006. Although NASA terminated observations of the Burst and Transient Source Experiment in June 2000, scientists can learn how the project is still providing benefits to the high-energy astrophysics community. Researchers can read publications on the subjects of Gamma-Ray Bursts, Discrete Sources, and Pulsars. Students can find materials on many gamma-ray phenomena such as black holes, pulsars, and gamma-ray bursts.
