FROM AN ALMOST PERFECT UNIVERSE TO THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

17 July 2018

The Planck consortium has made their final data release, including new processing of the cosmic microwave background temperature and polarisation data. This legacy dataset confirms the model of an 'almost perfect Universe', with some remaining oddities giving researchers some intriguing details to puzzle over.

A series of scientific papers describing the new results was published on 17 July and can be downloaded here.
