The Target role in the Euclid mission grabs the media attention

17 February 2014

Six years from now, an European collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA) will launch a satellite into space carrying cutting edge technology to map the structure and evolution of dark matter and dark energy. The satellite, named Euclid after the great mathematician will image about 10 billion astronomical objects. These data and data from many ground-based telescopes will be stored and analysed in a massive distributed archive system used by thousands of scientists in Europe and around the world. The Target coordinator, Edwin Valentijn talked to several media outlets and explained why the University of Groningen and the northern region are really excited about the Euclid mission.
