Euclid mission releases its first color images.

The five images mark an important step in the Euclid telescope’s six-year mission to create the largest cosmic 3D map ever made.

Unlike NASA’s James Webb telescope, which produces high-resolution images by focusing on smaller areas, Euclid can observe large sections of the sky much faster, and in higher resolution than previous survey missions. “We have never seen astronomical images like this before, containing so much detail,” said the ESA’s René Laureijs.
