SPACE: The spectroscopic all-sky cosmic explorer

Abstract:

We describe the scientific motivations, the mission concept and the instrumentation of SPACE, a class-M mission proposed for concept study at the first call of the ESA Cosmic-Vision 2015-2025 planning cycle. SPACE aims to produce the largest three-dimensional evolutionary map of the Universe over the past 10 billion years by taking near-IR spectra and measuring redshifts for more than half a billion galaxies at 0∈<∈z∈<∈2 down to AB~23 over 3π sr of the sky. In addition, SPACE will also ...
