The Euclid satellite was sent into orbit on July 1, 2023. Over a period of six years, the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Euclid mission and its space telescope will construct an extensive cosmic map, spanning both space and time, to investigate the nature and the development of the dark Universe. Euclid represents the outcome of a global partnership, engaging researchers from CNRS-INSU and CNRS-IN2P3. The Euclid Consortium, comprising over 1,500 scientists hailing from 300 diverse research facilities and institutions in 17 distinct nations, was responsible for supplying the scientific tools and will actively engage in generating and examining the scientific data.
