Gaia: galaxy mapper
Launched in late 2013, Gaia and its billion-pixel camera have spent the past two years conducting a detailed survey that is set to deliver the most detailed map of the Milky Way galaxy ever produced. However, several problems involving optical equipment have impacted the mission and required fixes or adaptations to analysis software to solve. Photo: ESA.
