Symposium on Our Universe: Revelations from Planck

17 April, 2013
The Planck satellite has collected the oldest light of the Universe and measured the tiny temperature fluctuations of this light to unprecedented accuracy. Imprinted on this light are clues about the physical properties of the Universe and its early history, and events that have affected the light in their journey to reach us today. The symposium is aimed at unravelling these clues from the recently released data from Planck.
