Jonathan Amos on ESA Planck and CMBT

I must confess being a bit jealous to BBC Science correspondent Jonathan Amos. For not only is his English slightly better than mine but he is able to expand top news in Space Sciences by explaining their highly complex backgrounds in most interesting ways and with great clarity so that even laypersons like me can follow the logic.

Take, for example, the current news about the release of ESA Planck satellite images of old light.

After reading the article by Amos you feel that you actually understand something about the top-notch ESA space research project and about cosmic microwave background radiation and what it can tell us about the Universe. From there on it is much easier to continue and to go ahead in personal exploration and study of the ESA Planck mission that is about to give a press conference of the images of oldest light.

That is quite an achievement in such a compact article aimed at the general public, isn't it!
