Abstract

We present the scientific motivation for future space tests of the equivalence principle, and in particular the universality of free fall, at the 10^{-17} level or better. Two possible mission scenarios, one based on quantum technologies, the other on electrostatic accelerometers, that could reach that goal are briefly discussed. This publication is a white paper written in the context of the voyage 2050 ESA call for white paper.
