The first Euclid Mission panel discussion on “Einstein & the Dark Universe” was live from Leiden in the Netherlands yesterday. Thanks to all those who sent in their questions via #askeuclid#euclidmission.
The Herschel press-release talks of “EoHe”. I thought it meant “End of Herschel”, but it means “End of Helium”. Helium is the coolant that enables Herschel to reach near absolute-temperatures in space, necessary to make observations in the infrared.
I am a cosmologist working on the Euclid space telescope at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) and am also an associate researcher in the Cosmostats Laboratory (CEA, Saclay). These are my personal musings about physics and life.
