The European Space Agency's Gaia spacecraft has taken its first sky map of our galaxy, revealing more than a billion stars. Launched in Gaia has just taken the largest all-sky survey of celestial bodies in history.

One billion stars in 3-D: Gaia's billion-star map hints at treasures to come

The first catalogue of more than a billion stars from ESA's Gaia satellite was published today – the largest all-sky survey of celestial objects to date.

Gaia satellite and amateur astronomers spot one in a billion star

An international team of researchers, with the assistance of amateur astronomers, have discovered a unique binary star system: the first known such system where one star completely eclipses the other. It is a type of two-star system known as a Cataclysmic Variable, where one super dense white dwarf star is stealing gas from its companion star, effectively 'cannibalising' it.
