Planck mission photographs are helping to shed light on the star formations that make up our galaxy.

The European Space Agency mission 'Planck' is sending photographs back to Earth which show a haze at the centre of our Galaxy and pockets of cold gas where none were thought to exist. Planck's primary objective is to study the remnants of the Big Bang and determine what the universe is made of which can only be done once sources of foreground emissions are identified.

"New images from the Planck mission show previously undiscovered islands of star formation and a mysterious haze of microwave emissions in our Milky Way galaxy."
