Gaia mission’s EDR3 available on Cosmohub

The CosmoHub service at PIC now provides the Early Data Release 3 (EDR3) of the Gaia mission. The early access is possible because PIC recently became one of the affiliated sites of Gaia.

Gaia is an ambitious mission to chart a three-dimensional map of our Galaxy, the Milky Way, in the process revealing the composition, formation and evolution of the Galaxy.

In its now available third data release, the object catalog features 1.8 billion objects with unprecedented positional and radial velocity measurements.

You can access the data as part of the public catalogs distributed through CosmoHub.
