Non-Astronomy Scientists May Help Answer Cosmology Conundrum
2013-11-28 06:41:07

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Measuring the invisible and intangible is a challenge for sure, but scientists have made inroads on one front: the study of dark matter and dark energy, two of the most mysterious substances in the cosmos. Although dark matter is intermixed with normal matter, it gives off no light, making it impossible to see. Dark energy presents even more challenges, yet researchers believe it works against gravity to pull our universe apart at...

Thales Alenia Space Leads Euclid Construction
2013-07-08 11:23:02

ESA The construction of ESA's Euclid space mission to explore the 'dark Universe' will be led by Italy's Thales Alenia Space as prime contractor, beginning the full industrial phase of the project. The announcement follows that of last month when Astrium Toulouse was confirmed to build the payload module - the telescope and optical bench carrying the science instruments. Euclid will be launched in 2020 to explore the roles played by dark energy and dark matter in the evolution of the...

Euclid Dark Matter Mission Now In Development
2013-06-11 13:13:58

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The European Space Agency's (ESA's) Euclid module under development in France will be helping to explore dark energy and dark matter in the universe. Euclid will be launching in 2020 to help scientists better understand the evolution of the Universe since the Big Bang and its present accelerating expansion. Dark matter is invisible to normal telescopes, making it hard to study. However, the elusive subject plays a vital role in...

NASA Joins ESA In Euclid Mission

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) are partnering up on the Euclid mission to investigate dark matter and dark energy together. The Euclid space telescope will launch in 2020 with about a 4-feet-diameter telescope and two scientific instruments that will map the shape, brightness and 3D distribution of two billion galaxies. With the mission, "scientists hope to solve key problems in our understanding of the evolution and fate...

Geometry
2014-01-02 10:21:51

Geometry is a branch of mathematics that is concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space. A mathematician who works in the geometry field is called a geometer. Geometry arose independently in numerous early cultures as a body of practical knowledge concerning areas, lengths, and volumes, with elements of a formal mathematical science emerging in the West as early as Thales. By the 3rd century BC, geometry was put into an axiomatic form by...
