July 2013 | Gaia journey to the stars

GAIA is set to launch on December 19th.

In this program first broadcast in July our main theme is the Milky Way.

In recent news it is now estimated that there are 60 billion stars with extra solar planets in our Milky Way, and there are 100 billion stars in our galaxy. In this week’s program we highlight the European Space Agency’s new mission GAIA which is to launch soon atop of a Russian rocket to study the stars of our Milky Way in extra fine detail.
