ESA Euclid telescope captures 100000 galaxies in one frame how does this possible know
It is noteworthy that the Euclid Telescope was launched into space only 4 months ago. It is exploring the universe by reaching the Sun-Earth point Lagrangian-2 (L2). The distance of L2 point from the Earth is about 15 lakh kilometers.
The pictures taken by Euclid Telescope have been taken by Hubble Telescope before, but this time more clear images have been captured. Good detail is visible in these. According to ESA report, in the pictures captured by the Euclid Telescope, 1 thousand galaxies are in a group shot. Their distance from Earth is about 24 crore light years. The most special image is of 1 lakh galaxies, which are several lakh light years away from the Earth. Having a million galaxies in one image is interesting.
According to the report, the instruments installed in the Euclid Telescope are so sensitive that they can find the smallest galaxies. Galaxies that were seen blurry till now are now being seen clearly. The Euclid Telescope has also captured a galaxy similar to our Milky Way.
Scientists hope that the Euclid Telescope will be very helpful in future space observations. In the next 6 years, this telescope will observe billions of galaxies and a 3D map of the universe will be prepared. This telescope is not a small project. NASA has also invested money in this mission. The mission was launched from America. NASA has supplied some instruments of this telescope.
