Euclid Flagship Mock Galaxy Catalog

Euclid’s core science

In the first half of July we will launch a Falcon 9 rocket into far Earth orbit, carrying Euclid – a 1.4-billion-Euro precision instrument to explore the far universe. So why is the European Space Agency spending this budget on this space mission and not, say, 200 million pieces of avocado toast, for example? In fact, there are too many great answers to this question. This blog post will only focus on one: the main goal of the mission – to increase our understanding of the dark universe.
