In about one year, ESA will launch Planck, a satellite to map the cosmic background radiation with unprecedented accuracy. Many features of the early universe are still unexplained, and need assumptions like the existence of “dark energy” to describe the formation of the very first galaxies. Planck is expected to help shedding more light on these mysteries.
This Exchange includes soundbites by NASA scientist George Smoot who received the 2006 Nobel Prize in physics for his work on the cosmi background radiation.
