Thursday, May 23, 2024 – A Durham University-led satellite project to better comprehend the dark Universe has revealed five new and breathtaking photographs. The institution is a main collaborator of the European Satellite Agency’s (Esa) Euclid satellite telescope, which is recognized as the costliest camera ever developed and will launch in July 2023.

According to one of the Spearheading members of the Euclid team, Professor Massey: “Euclid was designed over 20 years to withstand its harsh environment for at least six years. Today’s photographs demonstrate Euclid’s ability to discern structures and things in the dark Universe with unprecedented clarity. This is a hugely exciting time, which will significantly advance our knowledge and understanding of the evolution of our Universe.”

Its newest images include clusters of thousands of galaxies, star-forming nurseries, and galaxy mergers. The university’s researchers will compare previously recorded simulations to actual Euclid sightings to assist them analyze the telescope’s data.
