We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

The Planck satellite has sent back the most informative picture of the cosmic microwave background radiation so far and has confirmed some of the equations but has thrown up some  tantalising quirks that the scientists are going to have to explain.

It confirms the Universes age a little more accurately but this also adds another 80 million years to its age.

More can be read here An slightly older Universe/ science news.

It’s been a busy week here at Starts With A Bang, and with the two recent big posts — one on the eve of Planck and one just after the first big data release — I certainly wasn’t planning on writing one today. After all, there are only so many things one can do in a week, and we’ve certainly learned some unprecedented things about the Universe just over the last couple of days.

Planck is a mission from the European Space Agency (ESA), with a contributory role played by NASA and many other partners. Although both the ESA and NASA held press conferences, the ESA one happened while I was asleep, but the NASA one happened early yesterday morning my time, and I was able to attend remotely.

Cool :-)

Although what's another 80 million in such a time scale? ;-)

That's science being science refining its educated guesses!:-)
