It All Started with a Big Bang... But When?

The space telescope, Planck, has been observing the oldest light in the world, from just after the beginning of the Universe! These observations have now been collected into this map, showing the shape of the Universe when it was very young. The blue and red splotches you can see are the ancient ‘seeds’ of today’s stars and galaxies!
