Euclid – A space mission to map the Dark Universe

Euclid Cosmology Mission is the next cosmology satellite of the European Space Agency (ESA). The main object of Euclid is to solve the mystery of dark energy – why is the expansion of the universe accelerating. Dark energy represents around 75 % of the energy content of the Universe today, and together with dark matter it dominates the Universes' matter-energy content. Both are mysterious and of unknown nature but control the past, present and future evolution of Universe.
