Rosecrans, Swales Aerospace ABSTRACT The Swift Observatory will be launched in early 2004 to examine the dynamic process of gamma ray burst (GRB) events. They occur approximately once per day and are brief, but intense, flashes of gamma radiation. Cost. The Fermi Gamma-Ray Telescope is a space observatory designed to study the universe in highly energetic frequencies known as gamma-rays. The Swift Observatory will be launched in early 2004 to examine the dynamic process of gamma ray burst (GRB) events. The multi-wavelength Observatory will study the GRB afterglow characteristics, which will help to answer fundamental questions about both the … Exhibits and Speakers.

That link says $250M and yes, that and even more funding detail would be interesting.

Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are the most powerful explosions the Universe has seen since the Big Bang. They come from all different directions of the sky and last from a few milliseconds to a few hundred seconds. linas 04:58, 21 December 2011 (UTC) Successor to Compton Gamma Ray Observatory.
