ESA’s Planck mission has delivered its first all-sky image. Look at the first all-sky image on Chromoscope (http://www.chromoscope.net/).

Planck is a space observatory designed to observe the anisotropies of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) over the entire sky, using high sensitivity and angular resolution. - source (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planck_(spacecraft))

Awesome! By far the greatest works of art are produced outside the hands of man, I would love to find a place to have these blown up to frame and place upon my wall....

The bigger it gets the more microscope like it looks... this is to my mind the greatest proof of the fractality of the universe.


*not sure there is such a word as fractality...

If there wasn't such a word before, there is now (because you used it) - and if there is such a word now, there has always been such a word.

So I guess the answer is: Yes, there IS such a word :)

It makes 'Horton Hears a Who!' so much more believable :)


Edit: Moving the slider to Hydrogen a, and using some
state of the art image enhancement (ms paint) I believe I have
discovered an intergalactic cookie monster!
