Planck’s new view of the cosmic theatre
The first scientific results from ESA’s Planck mission were released at a press briefing today in Paris. The findings focus on the coldest objects in the Universe, from within our Galaxy to the distant reaches of space.
If William Shakespeare were an astronomer living today, he might write that”All the Universe is a stage, and all the galaxies merely players.”Planck is bringing us new views of both the stage and players, revealing the drama of the evolution of our Universe.
