SSC, through Aurora, is supporting the PLANCK Science Operations Team in ESAC with scientist Marcos López-Caniego.
ESA announced the new tool for astronomersincluding quotes from Marcos such as "There are a number of ways in which the data in this catalogue surpass those of its predecessors in more than just quantity," explains Marcos López-Caniego from ESA, responsible for the LFI portion of the survey. "For example, for the LFI channels, which cover the frequency range 30 to 70 GHz, averaging data over eight surveys has dramatically increased the sensitivity."
