Euclid

(planned survey observatory-satellite 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 1.2-meter optical/infrared Korsch telescope with a 0.5 square-degree field of view (large, for survey-work) and will orbit around Sun-Earth Lagrangian point L2. The plan is to launch it in 2022 for a six-year mission. Instruments:
