Euclid in a nutshell
ESA’s Euclid mission is designed to explore the composition and evolution of the dark Universe. The space telescope will create a great map of the large-scale structure of the Universe across space and time by observing billions of galaxies out to 10 billion light-years, across more than a third of the sky. Euclid will explore how the Universe has expanded and how structure has formed over cosmic history, revealing more about the role of gravity and the nature of dark energy and dark matter.
Euclid is a fully European mission, built and operated by ESA, with contributions from NASA. The Euclid Consortium – consisting of more than 2000 scientists from 300 institutes in 13 European countries, the US, Canada and Japan – provided the scientific instruments and scientific data analysis. ESA selected Thales Alenia Space as prime contractor for the construction of the satellite and its Service Module, with Airbus Defence and Space chosen to develop the Payload Module, including the telescope. NASA provided the near-infrared detectors of the NISP instrument.

It will be cool to see a major ESA mission launching on Falcon 9. Since a European rocket did such a phenomenal job with NASA's JWST, it's only fitting for a US rocket to return the favour.
That being said, I am very much looking forward to seeing Ariane 6 come online. Delays are always frustrating, but nothing beats the excitement when a brand-new launch vehicle finally rockets off the pad for the first time!
This will bring a lot of good mateiral to research!

el espacio exterior es increíble, ojala algún día ser astrónomo.
