The Global Telescope Network (GTN) is an informal association of scientists, students, individuals and observatories
interested in supporting the NASA
Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope
(formerly GLAST), Swift, and XMM-Newton missions by obtaining and reducing ground-based observations for objects related to the
primary science goals for these missions.
The Global Telescope Network provides:
• involvement for students, teachers, and amateur
astronomers in cutting-edge astronomical research.
• activities and instructional materials for a range of levels and interests.
• mentoring in research practices, telescope use, data analysis and educational resources.
