NASA's Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope is an upcoming space telescope designed to perform wide-field imaging and spectroscopy of the infrared sky. One of Roman's objectives will be looking for clues about dark energy — the mysterious force that is accelerating the expansion of the universe. Another objective of the mission will be finding and studying exoplanets.
