    gPhoton is a time-tagged database of more than a trillion ultraviolet photon events observed during the 10-year GALEX mission. In addition to this database of photon events, the project includes open-source python software to allow users to query the database and create calibrated light curves, images, and image cubes at user-defined temporal and spatial scales. You can read more about the gPhoton project at it's website: https://archive.stsci.edu/prepds/gphoton.
