Euclid

(planned observatory-satellite to measure dark energy)

Euclid is an European Space Agency (ESA) space mission under construction to study Dark Energy by determining Redshifts (z) of space objects. It will have a 1.2 meter Optical/Infrared (IR) Reflector Telescope and will orbit around Sun-Earth Lagrangian Point L2. The plan is to launch it in 2020 for a six-year mission.
