This new digital show of the Eugenides Planetarium was produced in cooperation with the European Space Agency (ESA) and planetariums all across Europe. "Journey to a billion Suns" tells the story of establishing the distance to the stars and our understanding of the Universe. The show aims at triggering the interest in science as an adventure, inviting the audience to a terrific journey through the Milky Way. It is the story of ESA's GAIA space mission that will map our Galaxy with extreme precision, never achieved before. With these measurements we will not only better understand the stars, but also discover countless new celestial objects, such as planets and asteroids, and maybe even the distribution of dark matter itself.
