Summary:
The Hipparcos satellite, developed and launched by the European Space Agency in 1989, was the first space mission dedicated to astrometry - the accurate measurement of positions, distances, and proper motions of stars. Amongst the key achievements of its measurements is the refining of the cosmic distance scale.
