Space Astrometry — Gaia

Gaia is the space astrometry project of European Space Agency (ESA). After about 20 years of development, Gaia was successfully launched on December, 19th 2013. Gaia is a special astrometric space telescope measuring 3-dimensional positions of about one billion stars, quasars and solar system objects as well as 3-dimensional velocities of those objects.

Our group at the Lohrmann-Observatory works actively for the project since 2001.
