It took 10 years for the European Space Agency to build the €1.4 billion Euclid telescope to study dark energy.

The European Space Telescope Euclid, or “Euclide,” is set to launch from the US Air Force Base in Florida in an attempt to solve one of the biggest questions perplexing science: What is the universe made of?

Euclid’s primary task was to create a massive 3D map of the universe, an attempt to relate certain properties of dark matter and dark energy.

Together, these phenomena control the shape and expansion of everything we see out there (the universe).

Researchers admit they know nothing about these phenomena.
