Reuniting Clusters with Gaia EDR3

We developed a novel method to reconstruct and determine the ages of all the young clusters within 200 pc of the Sun using Gaia EDR3 including the Pleiades (2110.03837) and four other clusters (2110.04296). In the process we found two white dwarfs lost from the Pleiades (2110.03837) bringing the total number of Pleiad WDs to three and three from the Alpha Persei cluster (2110.09668). These are the most massive white dwarfs to have been associated with clusters using the unprecedentedly precise astrometry of Gaia.
