GLAST renamed for Fermi: first results

GLAST prelude (MP3; explanation here)
Just two months or so after GLAST was launched, we will be told about the first results. They will also announce the new name of GLAST: it's Fermi.

The first result is that the gadget seems to be working very well and the luminosity is amazingly promising. Give us ten years, they say. There's a message for all Horgans, Woits, Smolins, and similar stuff from Dawkins: science is interesting and if you don't agree, continue with this video (context). ;-)
