Hey there! My name is James, I'm 19 years old, a self proclaimed psychonaut (If you couldn't already tell). I spend my days chilling, drawing, baking, frying, and most of the time I'm lost in my own head.
Gaia will be a revolution in our knowledge of the local Universe. For the first time we will have a fair sample of what is out there, where it is, how it is moving, how unseen (dark) matter is distributed, where and when stars formed and where and when the chemical elements of which we are made were created. Gaia will make a huge step towards understanding how the Milky Way came to be formed, and evolved into what we see today. For the first time, we will be able to see the Milky Way in 3-D. In fact in 6-D – where stars are, and how they are moving.
