NASA Ames Research Center (ARC) is a NASA facility located at Moffett Federal Airfield, which spans the borders of the cities of Mountain View and Sunnyvale in California. This research center is most commonly called NASA Ames.

ARC is active in aeronautical research, life sciences, space science, and technology research, especially information technology, including machine learning and artificial intelligence. The Center houses the world's largest wind tunnel, part of the National Full-Scale Aerodynamic Complex (NFAC). Although decommissioned by NASA in 2003, the NFAC is now being operated by the U. S. Air Force as a satellite facility of the Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC).

How did NASA obtain fermi imaging data from the viewpoint of outside the milky way? This week NASA revealed that there are two giant gamma ray "bubbles" projecting from the core of the milky-way. How was this image obtained, obviously it is from too far away for any craft to have traveled.
