The season starts … you can go there every day and every day something new blossoms. Very nice!
I am also quite impressed by the Sony α5100 camera, the pictures are not bad for such a small and light non-DSLR.
I am very thankful that I have been invited to the European Space Operations Center in Darmstadt to join the official launch event for the ESA Gaia mission. Here are some pictures. All in all it was a very cool event, although it was more press than science oriented.
