Results from the Planck Satellite
University of British Columbia
The Planck satellite, designed to comprehensively map the microwave sky in 9 frequency bands, was launched in 2009 and returned the first major cosmology results earlier this year. I will describe the experiment, indicate what we have learned about the Universe so far, and discuss what might come from results from the full Planck mission.
