100 Fascinating Facts About the Euclid Telescope

Unveiling the Cosmos: 100 Facts About the Euclid Telescope - A Journey into the Depths of Dark Energy and Cosmic Mysteries. Euclid's Near-Infrared Spectrometer and Photometer (NISP) instrument captures a mesmerizing raw image of the sky in infrared light (900–2000 nm). During commissioning, this focused instrument successfully measures the brightness and intensity of light emitted by galaxies at different wavelengths. The image reveals spiral and elliptical galaxies, stars, star clusters, and more, covering a quarter of the full Moon's width and height. While some artifacts like cosmic rays persist, the Euclid Consortium will produce artifact-free, detailed, and razor-sharp science-ready images from longer-exposed survey observations. NISP's vast field of view holds much more to be unveiled, as it is expected to capture light for roughly five times longer during nominal operation, revealing countless distant galaxies.
