BREAKING NEWS: NASA's Fermi to Reveal New Findings About 'Dark Matter'

NASA is planning to reveal a new discovery from its Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope on Thursday that will shed light on the nature of dark energy. About 80 percent of the universe is made up of a strange force called "dark matter". NASA has referred to this source as "ancient starlight".

NASA and the scientific journal "Science" has embargoed details until 2 p.m. on Nov. 1st. Perhaps one hint of what will be disclosed comes from a statement made by Jennifer Siegal-Gaskins, a physicist at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, Calif., and a member of the Fermi LAT Collaboration: "One of the best places to look for these faint gamma-ray signals is in small satellites of our own Milky Way galaxy that we know possess large amounts of dark matter."

Participants in the teleconference include Justin Finke, an astrophysicist at the Naval Research Laboratory, Washington; Marco Ajello, an astrophysicist at the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology, Stanford University and the Space Sciences Laboratory at the University of California at Berkeley; and Volker Bromm, an associate professor in the department of astronomy at the University of Texas at Austin.

The Fermi telescope launched in June 2008, and has been probing the sky in short-wavelength, high-energy gamma-ray light ever since. The observatory is named after Italian physicist Enrico Fermi, winner of the 1938 Nobel Prize in physics for his work on radioactive elements. He was a pioneer of high-energy physics, the domain of the Fermi telescope.
