Gaiverse is the GENIUS portal where you’ll find all the information related to ESA’s Gaia mission, whose objective is the creation of a three-dimensional map of our Galaxy.
Gaiaverse is a dissemination portal on the ESA Gaia’s mission developed within the GENIUS project, a European project funded by the European Commission to boost the impact of the next European breakthrough in astrophysics, the Gaia astrometric mission.
GENIUS aims at becoming a hub of Gaia’s spreading knowledge by collecting all kind of divulgation materials such as presentations, videos, posters, brochures, tools, news… which are all available through this portal, Gaiaverse.
What is Gaia?
Gaia is the European Space Agency (ESA) mission in charge of charting a three-dimensional map of our Galaxy, the Milky Way. In doing so, it seeks to provide a census of about one billion stars, which amounts to about 1 per cent of the Galactic stellar population.
A pan-European consortium, named DPAC (Gaia Data Processing and Analysis Consortium) and funded at the national level, is working on the implementation of the Gaia data processing, of which the final result will be, as mentioned above, a catalogue and data archive containing one billion objects.
Such an archive will be located at the European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC), which will serve as the basis for the scientific exploitation of the Gaia data.
