EuclidDetection

This graph shows what the Euclid mission might detect. The vertical axis is planet mass in terms of Earth mass, while the horizontal axis is orbital distance in terms of AU. The blue-shaded region is the region Euclid could probe, as compared to the red-shaded region of Kepler. Our solar system's planets are plotted for reference, as are previously detected exoplanets from transiting and radial velocity (black dots) and from microlensing (red dots).
