Gaia: Mapping the Milky Way From Space.

Gaia is the European Space Agency mission which is currently creating the first ever 3-D census of the Milky Way. Gaia’s giga-pixel camera is mapping over one billion stars to a precision comparable to resolving a button on the moon. Gerry Gilmore who is UK Principal Investigator for Gaia, and leads the team processing Gaia’s imaging data, will explain what Gaia is, how it is delivering a 12-Dimensional map of the Milky Way, and give some personal views on life inside a billion-euro project.

Professor Gerry Gilmore, University of Cambridge
Professor of Experimental Philosophy, Scientific Coordinator of Opticon, the EC Optical Infrared Coordination Committee for Astronomy, UK PI of the Gaia data processing consortium.
