        NASA | Gamma Ray Telescope Senses High-Energy Radiation

        In this video adapted from NASA, astronomers describe gamma rays -- the highest form of energy along the EM spectrum -- the GLAST satellite, which is equipped with a gamma-ray telescope, and share some background about the kinds of extreme universal phenomena indicated by the presence of gamma rays. The video also includes a brief description about why gamma-ray observations must be done from space rather on the ground.
