Submission + - Planck telescope delivers the most detailed picture ever of the early Universe (nature.com)

ananyo writes: "The Planck space telescope has delivered the most detailed picture yet of the cosmic microwave background, the residual glow of the Big Bang. Scientists unveiling the results from the €600 million European Space Agency (ESA) probe said that they shed fresh light on the first instants of our Universe’s birth. They also peg the age of the Universe at 13.81 billion years — slightly older than previously estimated. Planck’s results also strongly support the idea that in the 10-32 seconds or so after the Big Bang, the Universe expanded at a staggering rate — a process dubbed inflation."
