  • Physics Professor Awarded NASA Grant | Whittier College
    Astronomy Glenn Piner has been awarded a 94 991 grant from the Fermi Guest Investigator Program http fermi gsfc nasa gov at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center The one year award will support his proposal The Parsec Scale Jets of an Expanded Sample of TeV Blazars as seen by the Upgraded VLBA Fermi is a space observatory that is performing gamma ray astronomy observations from low Earth orbit As a Fermi Guest Investigator Piner will also have access to 129 hours of observing time with the National Radio Astronomy Observatory s Very Long Baseline Array VLBA of radio telescopes Piner and his team will use the VLBA to make high resolution images of supermassive black hole systems in the distant universe that produce very high energy gamma ray radiation from near the black hole Such systems are known as blazars Blazars produce some of the highest energy light known in the universe explains Piner Because such light must be produced by high energy particles blazars act as nature s particle accelerators although much of their physics remains controversial Piner s co investigator on the project is Dr Philip Edwards of CSIRO in Australia The grant will allow Piner to extend his regularly scheduled one semester sabbatical to a full year as well as fund conference travel and the purchase of computer workstations to store and process the VLBA data The award will also fund summer positions for Whittier College physics majors who will analyze some of the VLBA data for this project The team will image the few dozen blazars that are known to produce the highest energy gamma rays over one trillion electron volts or 1 TeV and then use these images to constrain the physical properties of these objects such as the speed of the emitting matter
