Fermi gamma-ray map

An article published in the journal “Nature Astronomy” describes a research that offers new confirmations that the anomalous gamma-ray detected for the first time in 2009 by NASA’s Fermi gamma-ray space telescope come from millisecond pulsars. The first hypothesis was that they were collisions of dark matter particles but millisecond pulsars that are found in the Milky Way nucleus with emissions mixed up in the signal detected by Fermi seem more and more probable.
