Tune to Planck

There is quite a hype in the corridors around the upcoming presentation of Planck results.
A press conference is scheduled on Thursday at 10am CET and it will be streamed directly from the ESA Headquarters.


The Planck space telescope was launched in May 2009 to obtain the most detailed map of the oldest light in the universe, the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB). Several rumors circulate these days about Planck having found several unexpected features of this radiation, which could drastically change our understanding of the Early Universe.

Needless to say, no semiofficial news leaked so far and there's nothing to do but tuning to the ESA streaming next Thursday!
