Over the past century, humanity has made quantum leaps in understanding the universe. Our entire knowledge of the cosmos originates from a colossal explosion 13.7 billion years ago, a monumental event that gave birth to the resplendent galaxy-filled universe we observe today. We have also known from observation that far from being static, the universe is currently undergoing accelerated expansion. Yet, significant mysteries remain unsolved, including the nature of the dark energy driving this acceleration and the essence of dark matter that dominates the cosmic structure’s evolution. The next generation of space cosmology survey telescopes, represented by Euclid, the Roman Space Telescope, and the Chinese Space Station Telescope, may hold the key to unlocking these pivotal questions. In this report, Ran Li from the National Astronomical Observatories of the Chinese Academy of Sciences will provide an overview of our current understanding of the universe and introduce the critical roles that space survey telescopes will play in furthering our exploration of these profound mysteries.
