Artist’s impression: European telescope probes the depths of the Milky Way

The latest batch of data has been released by Europe’s Gaia space telescope, which is building an up-to-date database of sources of cosmic light.

The space telescope has become an unparalleled machine, constantly reaping new discoveries.

Stars, meteorites and distant luminous galaxies, any space object that can be seen is observed and major data is recorded.

Gaia has scanned nearly 2 billion space objects. Space telescopes can now explain the makeup of these space objects.
