Planck Cosmology Findings to be Revealed at NASA Press Conference

March 20, 2013

A NASA telephone news conference tomorrow morning will announce the first cosmology results from Planck, the European Space Agency mission launched in 2009. Martin White of the Physics Division, a Planck scientist, is on the five-member panel discussing the results. One of Planck’s two main instruments evolved from a design by George Smoot, working with Reno Mandolesi and Marco Bersanelli, and much of the analysis was done at NERSC, with major contributions by Julian Borrill and others. Audio of tomorrow’s briefing, beginning at 8:00 a.m. PDT, will be streamed live on the NASA website at http://www.nasa.gov/newsaudio and http://www.ustream/tv/nasajpl2.
