Can we learn about New Physics with astronomical and astro-particle data? Since its launch in the 2008, the Large Area Telescope, onboard of the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, has detected the largest amount of gamma rays in the 20MeV 300GeV energy range and electrons + positrons in the 7 GeV- 1 TeV range. This impressive statistics allows one to perform a very sensitive indirect experimental search for dark matter. I will present the latest results on these searches and the comparison with LHC searches.
