Super cool! There's a fun fact: 1987A is the closest supernova we've seen since the invention of the telescope, but we know of another one at the end of the 19th century, beginning of the 20th, in the Galactic plane which went unnoticed possibly due to strong attenuation. The SNR for that one is G1.9+0.3.

Now that Fermi has been up for 10 years, what comes next in terms of space-based gamma-ray telescopes?

I may be too late for the questions, but apart from the Met, what's your favorite venue to perform at?

What has been the largest hurdle for you in bridging this community (and others online) to the astro research world? Can you talk a little bit about what approaches have worked and which ones you gave up on?

Thank you for all the great work you do popularizing astronomy!

EDIT: Reformatted as a question! :)
