The Gaia Project is considered the BIGGEST data challenge in astronomy to date.

The European Space Agency's (ESA) Gaia satellite is capturing data on around 1 billion celestial objects to create a 3D map of the Milky Way - but exactly how much information is being collected and how is it being stored and analyzed?

InterSystems techbology is the main database used in the near real-time processing, analysis, and validation for the Gaia satellite.

If you would like to learn more about the Gaia project, you can read the recent article by the BBC or visit the ESA Gaia site.
