Euclid release its first images: the dazzling edge of darkness
November 7, 2023
Euclid's first full-colour images are the sharpest ever across such a large patch of the sky and looking so far into the distant Universe. IFAE, ICE-CSIC and PIC has been responsible for the development of the Filter Wheel Assembly, one of Euclid instruments and for generating cosmological simulations.
Euclid test images tease of riches to come
July 31, 2023
Euclid’s two instruments have captured their first test images, showcasing space telescope potential to exceed its scientific goals. These are early test images, taken to check the instruments and review how Euclid can be further tweaked and refined. The Euclid space mission will create the largest and most accurate 3D map of the universe.
The Euclid telescope takes off to explore the dark universe
