Looking into the dark: Ahead with the Euclid mission

June 20, 2012

On 19. June, the European Space Agency (ESA) formally adopted the largest collaboration of astronomers in the World, including scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics to help build the Euclid satellite. Euclid will study the ``Dark Universe” with great precision, tracing the distribution and evolution of the enigmatic dark matter and dark energy throughout the Universe. [more...]

MPE contribution to Euclid takes next hurdle
December 16, 2015
The complex optics being developed at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics for the near-infrared instrument NISP aboard the Euclid space telescope has passed its Critical Design Review and will now enter the construction phase. From 2020 onwards and with the help of this instrument as well as an imaging camera for visible light, the Euclid satellite is expected to map the universe more accurately than ever before. Scientists will thus be able to track the history of the universe more accurately and to get valuable insights into the mysterious components of the universe, "dark energy" and "dark matter".
