The Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) signed the Multilateral Agreement for the Euclid mission, during the Science Programme Committee meeting, held on 28 November 2013, in Paris. Scheduled for launch in 2020, the Euclid mission will map the shape, brightness and 3D distribution of two billion galaxies, having as objective to identify the roles played by dark mater and dark energy in the evolution and expansion of the Universe.
The Euclid Multilateral Agreement provides the legal framework for the provision of the scientific instruments for the Euclid payload, and the legal framework for part of the Science Ground Segment for Euclid. This agreement is between the European Space Agency and the funding agencies of the eleven European countries participating in the Euclid Mission Consortium. Romania was represented by the Romanian Space Agency through Dr. Dumitru Hasegan.
In the Euclid Consortium, Romania is represented by the Institute of Space Science (ISS), where an Euclid group of researchers is coordinated by Dr. Lucia Aurelia Popa. Member of the Consortium Board since the beginnings of the mission, Dr. Lucia Popa is the national point of contact. To find out more about the ISS Euclid Group, please visit this page, and for details on their activity, you can watch this short presentation movie.
