There's an anomalous cold spot in the cosmic microwave background that's baffled scientists for years. A group of astronomers now say they know what it is a "supervoid" measuring nearly 1.8 billion light-years across. The Cosmic Microwave Background (
Collaboration In the paper, the US-led group stands by its work but accepts some big questions remain outstanding...Yes," Prof Clem Pryke, from the University of Minnesota, told his audience. Light twist What the team announced at its 17 March press

It's almost three months since a team of scientists announced it had detected polarised light from the afterglow of the Big Bang. But questions are still being asked about whether cosmic dust may have clouded their discovery. The latest, and most
Researchers have created a map using data from the Planck Space Telescope. Since 2009, Planck has charted the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB), the light from the Universe a mere 380,000 years after the Big Bang.
Video Reuters Video Video The satellite was designed to probe the most distant light in the universe not as human eye would see it, but in the microwave part of the spectrum, where signals from the most distant reaches of the universe can be
14 London: Scientists have discovered four new galaxy clusters, each potentially containing thousands of individual galaxies, some 10 billion light years from Earth. An international team of astronomers, led by Imperial College London, used a new
Project scientist Jan Tauber "It is with much sadness that we have carried out the final operations on the Planck spacecraft, but it is also a time to celebrate an extraordinarily successful mission," Steve Foley, operations manager for Planck at
ESA's Planck space telescope has been switched off after nearly 4.5 years soaking up the relic radiation from the Big Bang and studying the evolution of stars and galaxies throughout the history of the Universe.
European 'big bang' space telescope, Planck, will be turned off in two weeks' time, as it has completed its mission. The process of disposing of the satellite, which mapped the "oldest light" in the Universe in unprecedented detail, has begun, the
