ESA’s Planck satellite has to date discovered no fresh evidence for the confusing cosmic anomalies that were observed in the temperature map of the Universe. In the current study, the potential significance of the anomalies has not been ruled out but it does mean that the astronomers have to work hard to solve the puzzling mystery. The analysis of the polarization of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) radiation has given rise to Planck’s latest results. The satellite’s earlier analysis that was made communal in 2013 focused only on the temperature of the radiation in the entire sky. The astronomers now have a chance to explore the origin and evolution of cosmos. Planck’s first map publicized many anomalies that are quite puzzling in the ordinary standard model of cosmology.
The anomalies are dim features in the sky that turn visible at bigger angular scales. They are not the result of the behavior of the satellite or data processing but they could be statistical flukes, which are rare fluctuations that cannot be completely ruled out by the standard model. The anomalies could be a sign of new physics. For gathering more of evidence, the Planck team studied the polarization of the CMB and found after a painstaking exploration of many frequency data designed to discard the sources of microwave emission like gas and dust found commonly in our Milky Way galaxy.
The current signal is the most accurate measurement of the CMB polarization E-modes and it takes us to the time the atoms formed the Universe and resulted in its release. The scattering of the light through the electron particles gathered around the hydrogen atoms resulted in its formation. The Planck did not focus on the polarization but used its observation to create maps of the entire sky using the CMB polarization. European Space Agency’s Planck telescope released its final maps of the early Universe in 2018 showing the end of an era of the cosmological science. The cosmic microwave background is the faint glow that appeared after the Big Bang, which was very well explored by the telescope before showing the end of an era in the cosmos.
