The European space observatory Gaia has been launched to map our galaxy in unprecedented detail. Gaia will accurately measure the positions of a billion stars and also be able to detect exoplanets by the "wobbles" they induce.
Gaia's guidance system is so sensitive that it could pin-point a flea on the Moon! More information here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-25445373 .
