Abstract

Astronomers and observers are never satisfied to stop exploring the Universe. With the development of space observing technology, more and more advanced telescopes were launched into space. It can be obviously seen that the space observing technique is closely related to humans’ understanding about the early universe and galaxies. This project aims to study the goals of the Euclid program and learn how the First Light and Reionisation Epoch Simulation (FLARES) works, by determining the prediction range of the Euclid Spacecraft on galaxies in the Reionisation Epoch, based on the simulated data from the FLARES. Some brief introduction about the early universe, galaxies and stars will be mentioned for better comprehending, along with the principles of FLARES. Several diagrams are made for analysis and the results show that the detecting range approximately matches our realistic circumstances on space observing.
