The European Space Agency, the Planck Space Observatory had delivered spectacular views of the previously perceived plain white Milky Way galaxy. Costing at about 795 million dollars just to design and launch, the observatory was able to take immeasurable images of the Milky Way from 2009 to 2013, collecting images and creating a mosaic of the galaxy.
The majestic view of the galaxy was brought to life in never-before-seen way. Planck’s instruments were able to capture, in other wavelengths, images of magnetic fields, high energy molecules, interstellar gas and dust, which used differently colored filters. Thus, the agency has disproved some erroneous information last year, involving the declaration of gravitational wave existence in CMB radiation.
