Gaia Data Release (DR3) – a Game Changer for the Astronomical Community
In 2022, the Gaia Data Processing and Analysis Consortium (DPAC) released more analysed data from the Gaia mission. We spoke to Telespazio Scientist, Héctor Cánovas Cabrera (Gaia Support Archive Scientist and Calibration Scientist), who works on the Gaia mission, to find out more about the mission and the importance of the latest data release.

Hector is one of many Telespazio colleagues who support this mission, alongside:

  • David Teyssier – Interface Scientist in the Gaia DPAC Project Office
  • Mercedes Ramos-Lerate – Gaia Science Operations Engineer
  • Raúl Gutiérrez-Sánchez – Software and Database Engineer
  • Ivan Valtchanov – Gaia Support Calibration Scientist
