Launched in December 2013, the Gaia mission is revolutionising our understanding of the Milky Way. The space telescope is mapping our galaxy in unprecedented detail measuring the position, movement and distance of stars.
At a meeting in Groningen in the Netherlands, scientists have been discussing the challenge of processing and visualising Gaia data.
