Euclid (ESA) will accomplish a task, to be launched in 2022, has two of the greatest mysteries of modern astronomy: “matter and dark energy”.

A team of NASA engineers recently delivered important software, dedicated to one of the tools that explores these cosmic puzzles.

Euclid will scan billions of distant galaxies away from us faster and faster as the space expands, Scientists do not know what is causing this accelerated expansion, but they have called the source of this phenomenon dark energy.

By observing the effect of dark energy on the distribution of a large number of galaxies, scientists will try to narrow the scope of what could be the cause of this mysterious phenomenon.

In addition, the Euclid will provide in depth information of limitless galaxies although it is difficult to see dark matter, it is more prevalent in the universe five times than the ordinary matter that forms planets, stars and everything else that we can see in the universe.

The detection of dark matter and the knowledge of the effects of attractiveness will reveal a survey Euclid for distant galaxies how the structure of the universe is widely formed through the interaction of ordinary matter, dark matter and dark energy, this will allow scientists to learn more about the properties and effects of dark matter and the dark energy in the universe and to get closer to understanding its basic nature in the mission.
