Gaia creates richest star map of our Galaxy – and beyond

Quote

ESA’s Gaia mission has produced the richest star catalogue to date, including high-precision measurements of nearly 1.7 billion stars and revealing previously unseen details of our home Galaxy.

A multitude of discoveries are on the horizon after this much awaited release, which is based on 22 months of charting the sky. The new data includes positions, distance indicators and motions of more than one billion stars, along with high-precision measurements of asteroids within our Solar System and stars beyond our own Milky Way Galaxy.

Some life forms must be out there somewhere. It makes me feel so alone to think we are the only planet with life on,  but looking all those billions of stars...we can not be! Surely not.

I still do not think i will see them find another planet with life similar to ours on it in my life time, but one day? Very likely as the technology is getting better and better.

Sure.  I'll get it started anyway...

Star 1, Star 2, Star 3, Star 4.

Okay, you guys can do the rest.

Can we number them using base binary instead of base 10?

There are 10 types of people in the world, those that understand binary and those that don't.

No.  Then I'd have to start all over.
