    5 '''Gaia''' ('''Global Astrometric Interferometer for Astrophysics''') is an ambitious space mission organized by the European Space Agency (ESA) and involves conducting a census of approximately one billion stars in our Galaxy. Gaia will monitor each of its target stars for about 70 times over a five-year period. It is scheduled to launch on October of 2013, on a Soyuz-Fregat rocket from Sinnamary, part of Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana. Gaia is the successor to the Hipparcos mission and will rely on the proven principles from the Hipparcos mission. It is predicted that Gaia will discover hundreds of thousands of new celestial objects, such as extra-solar planets and brown dwarfs. The total cost of the mission is approximately 650 milllion euros which includes the manufacture, launch and ground operations.
