New data collection from Europa’s Gaia mission will lead to the best Milky Way map ever

The European Space Agency’s Gaia mission will release new data on June 13, and scientists can’t wait.

The next data dump will contain information about nearly two billion of the brightest objects in the sky. The launch will supercharge the mapping of our Milky Way galaxy, experts say, allowing astronomers to see the galaxy’s farthest fringes and also discern far finer details in its structure than ever before.
