Last year, the European Space Agency launched the Planck telescope, sending it nearly a million miles deep into space. Using technology with light sensitivity, the telescope was able to capture the first image of the universe. Studying the evolution of space through heat left behind by the Big Bang, the Planck’s data will be used to further understand the origins of space. Important as that information is, that photo is incredible. Using light-sensitive technology, the image reveals the first comprehensive look at the universe, including the galaxy’s ‘main disc’ where our solar system is located.
