Message 9717 - Posted: 30 Nov 2011, 23:51:48 UTC

Hello C@H members!

Dr. Jatila Van Der Veen has directed me to a website where I could find update about the Planck Mission. The website is being regularly updated with cool images and animations, and I find it highly educational. Here is the link:

http://sci.esa.int/science-e/www/object/index.cfm?fobjectid=31075&farchive_objecttypeid=18,19,22&farchive_objectid=30912&fareaid_2=17

Best,

Faik

Thanks Faik -

since this is a long link to copy or retype, here is a clickable version of this link to Planck-related videos and images.

Check out the BBCode tags (for a short description click on the left of the field where you edit your post) to see how to include clickable links in your posts - you use the

[url=...] [/url]
tag.

Best,
Ben

Edit: I just realized that code is shown black on black - I'll update the style of the website to show it in yellow.
Edit: Done.

Hello C@Homers,

Here is a nice BBC article on the Planck Mission. The article discusses background information as well as recent developments in a non-technical way.

Major coming milestones:

Early 2012: Release of a set of Planck papers focussed on Galactic and extragalactic science.

Early 2013: Public release of Planck data and products, together with a set of papers focussed on cosmology and the data products.

The full schedule for the mission is here.
