Here is the finest baby picture of the universe we can possibly get:



Results show that the universe has less dark energy than previously thought (68-69%), more dark matter (26%), and slightly more baryonic matter (4.9%). The Hubble Constant is now put at 67.3 ± 1.2 km/s/Mpc, which is on the extreme low end of the WMAP estimates. These factors in turn mean that the age of the universe is slightly older than previously estimated, at 13.81 billion years. (Previously ~13.74).

Other finds:
No spatial curvature.
No extra types of neutrinos.
Strong evidence of inflation, but details on constraining the different possible types remains to be seen from polarization data.

More discussion may be found here. smile

I was waiting for years for these results (mostly just to look at the pretty maps) and I enjoyed seeing this a few days ago. As with so many things recently, I mean to post about it here but didn't. Thanks for posting it smile
