Earthquakes in stars similar to those that occur on Earth and how stellar DNA is composed.

These are some of the findings of the new and more detailed map of the Milky Way created from observations by the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Gaia probe.

This is the third information presentation from the ESA mission launched in 2013, which aims to create the most complete and multidimensional map of our galaxy.

The observations, taken between 2014 and 2017, cover about 2 billion stars, which make up about 1% of the Milky Way’s total.
