### Euclid

(planned observatory-satellite to measure dark energy)

**Euclid** is an European Space Agency space mission under construction to study
dark energy by determining redshifts of space objects.
It will have a 1.2 meter optical/infrared
Korsch telescope with a 0.5 square-degree field of view
and will orbit around Sun-Earth
Lagrangian point L2. The plan is to launch
it in 2022 for a six-year mission.
