A NASA mission expected to launch in 2006, the Gamma Ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST) is being developed to observe celestial gamma-ray sources in the 10MeV to over 100GeV energy band. After discovering its four key objectives, visitors can learn about GLAST's Precision Tracker Calorimeter, Data Acquisition System, and Anticoincidence Detector. Students and educators will find documentation on the Science Performance Requirements as well as information on the analysis of the simulation and reconstruction software. The site also contains over two hundred abstracts discussing GLAST.
