First Results from the Planck Mission: Early Science Results on Clusters

Jean-Baptiste Melin

CEA (Saclay)

In January 2011, the Planck collaboration released the first results from the mission, based on the first 10 months of survey data (allowing for full sky coverage). These early results already allow us to answer a number of questions related to Galactic and extragalactic physics. I will give a brief overview of the early results and then focus more specifically on cluster science. I will present, in particular, the early cluster sample and detail multi-wavelength analyses that have shed new light on the structure formation process in the Universe.
