What can we do here in Britain to foster innovation and entrepreneurship in order to give our companies the best chance to succeed on the world stage? This is a question that we as a country need to answer if we are to remain an economic powerhouse, and with a multitude of emerging economies breathing down our necks, it's a question we need to answer quickly.
Euclid is a space telescope planned for launch in 2020 by the European Space Agency, and will make a map of the distribution of billions of galaxies in the Universe.
