VR Milky Way model to open up galaxy

Lund University researchers are creating a virtual reality 3D model of the Milky Way and say their research could also potentially allow surgeons to work together in medical examinations despite being on separate continents. The team, led by astrophysicist Oscar Agertz at Lund Observatory and Mattias Wallergård at the Faculty of engineering, Lund University, will use data from more than a billion stars to develop an interactive galaxy model. It was collected from the Gaia satellite, launched by the European Space Agency in 2013. Gaia has been orbiting the Earth and collecting data for five years.
