Planck & The Big Bang Theory
Thurs., Dec. 5 at 7pm PT (10pm ET, 0300 UTC)
Launched on May 14, 2009, the Planck mission studies the ancient radiation from the Big Bang, called the cosmic microwave background, to help answer questions about the early history and evolution of the universe. The European Space Agency mission, with significant NASA/JPL participation, produced its first all-sky image, and scientists continue to analyze and parse the various and complex elements. The first cosmology results from Planck revealed the most precise measurements yet of the age, origins and fate of our universe.
