What if you put a team of astronomers and a class of animation students together to try to explain the mysteries of the gamma-ray universe as seen with the Fermi satellite? Since 2013, scientists from the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope have worked with Maryland Institute College of Art students to produce a series of animations based on Fermi research that includes black holes, pulsars, dark matter and more.
