The European Space Agency has chosen Mark Brodwin, UMKC assistant professor of physics and astronomy, as one of the NASA-nominated science team members to participate in its Euclid telescope mission. The goal of the Euclid mission is to understand the nature of dark energy and dark matter through measurement of the expansion of the universe.
“These data will revolutionize cosmology and astronomy early in the next decade, so it’s exciting to be a member of the team working to make Euclid a success,” said Brodwin. He is part of the 43-member group from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
