GLAST successfully LAUNCHED!

At last, GLAST is on-orbit now.

GLAST launch

Its solar arrays had deployed and all systems are operating as planned. But it will take 60 days for checkout and calibration before the science operations begin.

GLAST is design to look at gamma rays. It’ll explore the extremely high-energy objects in our universe and hopefully can help us understand some of their mysteries.

Oh, one more thing… GLAST will not be GLAST for long, it’s going to have a new name soon, stay tuned.
