Euclid is a space mission selected by ESA as part of the Cosmic Vision 2015-2025 program, to be launched in 2022. Euclid will map the geometry of the dark Universe. The mission will investigate the distance-redshift relationship and the evolution of cosmic structures. It achieves this by measuring shapes, luminosities at different wavelenghts and redshifts of galaxies and clusters of galaxies out to redshifts ~2, or equivalently to a look-back time of 10 billion years. It will therefore cover the entire period over which dark energy played a significant role in accelerating the expansion.
The FACe provides the CODEEN platform for continuous integration development in the Euclid’s ground segment framework.
