Planck Day!

Leave a comment

Things are, as you would imagine, busy. My colleague, Andrew Jaffe, is off to Channel 4 in half an hour, and a posse of Planck scientists is sitting in our coffee room watching presentations from Paris.

The ESA pages on the Planck release are here, and BBC coverage can be found here.

And if you want to play with the Planck maps yourself, I can recommend the Planck Chromoscope.

Bottom line of the results from my point of view: the era of precision cosmology has arrived!

More will accrete over the next few days.
