Update: For some data announced on Monday, see e.g. Spergel's Twitter
ESA's Planck spacecraft is two orders of magnitude more expensive than the BICEP2 experiment (a telescope at the South Pole) that ignited so much excitement in Spring 2014.
Planck: live broadcast
With various expectations, people are waiting what Planck may say about the polarization data of the CMB – and the foregrounds.
In comparison with BICEP2, Planck should have some advantages. Between 2009 and 2013, it was mapping the whole sky. Also, it should be looking at nine frequencies. Finally, two days ago, ESA promised us results in the coming 5 days:
You may bookmark this list of 6 live broadcasts from the conference, assuming that you will survive that those Italian chaps have misspelled the name of Planck everywhere. No, Max Planck was a relative of neither plankton nor Newton.
Many of us have voiced some doubts whether Planck has the capability to settle the questions about the origin of the anomalous or potentially exciting observations by BICEP2. I think that there have been reasons to be doubtful about Planck's impartiality.
We will probably see what they have to offer and whether their picture may become equally solid or more solid than the picture painted by BICEP2. Other experiments should report some new results at the conference, too. BICEP2 and Planck have been promising a joint paper by the end of November – they have few hours left and I am pretty sure that they won't tell us anything before that soft deadline.
