Euclid
(planned survey observatorysatellite to measure dark energy)
Euclid is an European Space Agency space mission under construction to study
dark energy by determining redshifts of extragalactic
objects.
It will have a 1.2meter optical/infrared
Korsch telescope with a 0.5 squaredegree field of view
(large, for surveywork)
and will orbit around SunEarth
Lagrangian point L2. The plan is to launch
it in 2022 for a sixyear mission.
