Map of Milky Way – level 1
This news is about space. The European Space Agency launches a satellite. Its name is Gaia. It carries a very good camera. It takes pictures of our galaxy, the Milky Way.
The pictures turned into a 3D map. This takes time. There are 1 billion stars in the galaxy. We must wait for the pictures until the end of 2017.
Right now, we have pictures of 2 million stars. The ESA makes a video from this. The video starts in our solar system. It goes through the Milky Way. It ends 150 light years away.
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
