Gaia Calibration and Relativity Tests
The ESA Gaia satellite mission delivers ultra-high precision data for astronomy and fundamental physics. Converting the raw data to a usable form is one of the largest computational challenges ever solved in observational astronomy. The local astronomy group at TUD is responsible for the core computations, calibration and relativistic modeling of the data and part of the European Gaia data consortium. The usage of the local HPC system is absolutely essential for this work.
