Gaia's first data release: the galactic census begins (Cambridge Science Festival 2017)
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Andrew Howe.
The Gaia satellite, launched in December 2013, will provide the first six-dimensional census of the Milky Way using a billion-pixel video camera. It will determine basic astrophysical properties for one billion stars, test general relativity, and provide the first robust distance scale in cosmology. Professor Gerry Gilmore outlines what the first data release shows.
