Three astronomers have argued that it might be a bad idea to release everything discovered about the cosmos following ESA's Planck mission in 2013 due to the unavailability of additional data once we've learned all there is to know.
Cosmologists are doing the happy dance. The European Space Agency's Planck mission is busy surveying the cosmic microwave background, aka the "echo" of the big bang, and in 2013 will release a feast of data that promises to deliver profound new insights into the origin of the universe.
