Planck is a European Space Agency mission with significant NASA involvement to measure the intensity and polarization of the sky over a range of frequencies from 30 to 857 GHz (wavelengths 1 cm to 350 microns). The telescope and instruments were designed to improve upon measurements of the intensity and polarization of the cosmic microwave background (CMB). The lowest frequencies overlap with the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe, and the highest frequencies extend far into the submillimeter in order to improve upon separation between galactic foregrounds and the CMB.

More information on the Planck mission is available from the US Public Planck website and the ESA Planck website.
