A set of 22 Gaia posters in English in PDF format. High and low resolution versions of the first 16 posters are provided (high resolution versions of the first 16 posters can be downloaded from https://gaia.geo.tu-dresden.de/GaiaPosters/ ). The posters, based on the original Gaia posters in Spanish prepared by the team from the University of Barcelona, were translated into English, improved, and technically implemented by the joint team from ARI/ZAH, University of Heidelberg and Lohrmann Observatory, Technische Universität Dresden: Stefan Jordan, Toni Sagristà Sellés, Hagen Steidelmüller, Michael Soffel, and Sergei Klioner. Various suggestions from other colleagues are gratefully appreciated. Please email your comments and suggestions to Stefan Jordan (jordan at ari dot uni-heidelberg dot de).
The original Spanish posters can be found here.
German versions of the posters (16 posters) are available from https://gaia.geo.tu-dresden.de/GaiaPosters/ .

Gaia and the shape of asteroids
An occultation of a star by an asteroid or a minor planet allows us to know their shape and size and if there is an atmosphere, to study its characteristics. The precision of the positions of the stars in the Gaia catalogue enable us to predict very accurately from where on Earth we will see an occultation.
