Cosmic Vision : Euclid space telescope / Euclides

1 juli 2023 @ 17:11 - 1 juli 2029 @ 17:11

Euclid is a visible to near-infrared space telescope developed by the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Euclid Consortium, the objective of the Euclid mission is to better understand dark energy and dark matter by accurately measuring the acceleration of the universe.

To achieve this, the Korsch-type telescope will measure the shapes of galaxies at varying distances from Earth and investigate the relationship between distance and redshift. Dark energy is generally accepted as contributing to the increased acceleration of the expanding universe, so understanding this relationship will help to refine how physicists and astrophysicists understand it. Euclid’s mission advances and complements ESA’s Planck telescope (2009 to 2013). The mission is named after the ancient Greek mathematician Euclid. Euclid is a medium-class (“M-class”) mission and is part of the Cosmic Vision campaign of ESA’s Science Programme. This class of missions have an ESA budget cap at around €500 million. Euclid was chosen in October 2011 together with Solar Orbiter, out of several competing missions. Prior to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the launch was scheduled on a Soyuz ST-B in 2023; following the invasion, Euclid will instead be launched on a Falcon 9 Block 5 on 1 July 2023.
