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.
