Odysseus is a contest addressing many scientific and technological space challenges. We are going to talk about it and our winning project: see if it is worthy going into space to measure some cosmological parameters. In order to do this, we compared the predicted Earth and space telescopes. We also discussed what advantages and limitations we can get from going into space. Subsequently, we presented a study of the precision of the telescope/spectroscope and the uncertainties we can get in the cosmological parameters. Finally, we showed our prediction for the best results we can get from space. We also analyzed some real proposals for telescopes.
