This photograph, taken in May 2008 as the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope was being readied for launch, highlights the detectors of the spacecraft's Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM). The GBM is an array of 14 crystal detectors designed for transient lower-energy gamma-ray outbursts, such as TGFs. › Large (5000 x 7470, 300 ppi)
› Medium (516 x 786, 72 ppi)
› Small (100 x 75, 72 ppi)
