    I'm dealing with .fits (.fit) files with Mathematica, and these files are Fermi LAT GRBs data. We can import one of them by Import["https://heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/FTP/fermi/data/gbm/triggers/ 2017/bn170306588/current/glg_trigdat_all_bn170306588_v01.fit"] for example.

    Every fit file has its header imformation, and we can read it via fv, and it looks just like that:


    I cannot find any way to read the header of FITS file in Mathematica. So my question is this:

    Is there any way to read FITS header information ?
