Projects for the topic dark energy

Proposed projects

The Cosmological Advanced Survey Telescope for Optical and UV Research is a proposed Canadian Space Agency satellite mission that would provide high-resolution imaging in the UV/optical (0.15–0.55 μm) spectral region.

In 2022 the European Space Agency will launch the Euclid satellite mission. Euclid is a medium class astronomy and astrophysics space mission that will undertake a galaxy redshift survey over the redshift range 0.9 < z < 1.8, while simultaneously performing an imaging survey in both visible and near infrared bands. The complete survey will provide hundreds of thousands of images and several tens of Petabytes of data.

The Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope is a NASA flagship space mission – the grandchild of the Hubble Space telescope - to launch in 2025 that will study dark matter, dark energy and exoplanets with unprecedented precision. Mike Hudson has been leading the scientific effort that will enable Canada to join this mission. He is also a member of the WFIRST Cosmology Science Investigation Team.
