02.08.08 - NASA announced the public will have a chance to suggest a new name for the cutting edge Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope observatory before it launches in mid-2008.
03.12.08 - As part of their preparations for GLAST's May 16th launch, LAT collaborators rehearsed data-taking shifts with simulated data.
03.07.08 - NASA's GLAST spacecraft arrived Tuesday at the Astrotech payload processing facility near the Kennedy Space Center to begin final preparations for launch.
02.07.08 - In Hangar M on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, the United Launch Alliance Delta II first stage is revealed after the cover was removed from the truck that delivered it.
12.19.07 - The Naval Research Laboratory in Washington received a wonderful present this year: NASA's Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope.

11.07.07 - The gently glowing moon is more than just a pretty ball in the sky—for gamma-ray astronomers, the moon could become a unique target for calibrating instruments such as the Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST).
11.05.07 - The Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST) is scheduled for launch early next year, and although it will observe a great variety of interesting high-energy sources, one type of object in particular is expected to dominate the gamma-ray sky: a special class of active galactic nuclei known as "blazars."
10.23.07 - During the week of October 8, 2007, the researchers and engineers who will operate the LAT and analyze its data rehearsed the activities they will undertake to activate and checkout the instrument during its first 60 days of orbit.
