Abstract

On 15 September 2016, ESA released the data of the first 1,000 days of measurements from the Gaia mission. The large data package included 1.1 billion star positions, motions, brightness values and more, as well as surprises such as supernova detections. Thanks in part to the accurate space interferometer BAM developed by TNO.
