The Milky Way and beyond: Scientists publish new data on nearly 2 billion stars
That bounty is thanks to the European Space Agency's Gaia mission , which has spent 6.5 years tracking stars in our Milky Way galaxy and beyond. Using the spacecraft's observations, scientists can create a precise 3D map of stars and find patterns playing out across the galaxy. "We're still only observing probably about 1% of all the stars in the Milky Way, even with this enormous number." Among plenty of other research, the previous data release allowed scientists to track the formation history of the Milky Way, Brown said. More recently, as the Milky Way has slowly torn apart a nearby dwarf galaxy, the interactions seem to coincide with bursts of star formation in the Milky Way, a different kind of galactic shaping.space.com
