The Gaia satellite by the European Space Agency is currently orbiting
1.5 million kilometers beyond the moon, twirling through the heavens and
dutifully marking down the positions of every point of light it sees. I've processed the program's first batch of data to determine the 3D position
of about 2 million stars. Click and drag to orbit, or scroll/pinch to zoom in and out, zoom all the way in to see our sun, just one star among millions. WebVR enabled! Read about how I made this here.
