We are mapping the dark Universe
Euclid is an ESA-mission to map the geometry of the dark Universe with lift-off in 2020. Clara (previously Prototech) is designing and building hardware to the spacecraft on behalf of the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics, University of Oslo and European Space Agency (ESA).

Above: Project Manager Bjarte G. B. Solheim, Roar Holmebukt og Robert Schistad - Clara (previously Prototech) - prepares a critical step in the process of qualifying the structure for space flight.
The EUCLID-mission will investigate the distance-redshift relationship and the evolution of cosmic structures by measuring shapes and redshifts of galaxies and clusters of galaxies out to redshifts ~2, or equivalently to a look-back time of 10 billion years. In this way, Euclid will cover the entire period over which dark energy played a significant role in accelerating the expansion.
Partners: The Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics, University of Oslo and European Space Agency (ESA).
