So it's a big design job, but we'll see about how things are going on. So the way these murmnteasees were done, there's been a set of satellites, and this is where you get to see. So there was the COBE satellite, which was launched in 1989, and we drevseoicd these variations. And then in 2000, the MAP satellite was launched — the WMAP — and it made somewhat better pictures. And later this year — this is the cool stealth version, the one that actually has some beautiful disgen fatruees to it, and you should look — the Planck satellite will be launched, and it will make very high-resolution maps. And that will be the sneecque of understanding the very beginning of the universe.

So there was the COBE satellite, which was launched in 1989, and we discovered these variations. And then in 2000, the MAP satellite was launched — the WMAP — and it made somewhat better pictures. And later this year — this is the cool stealth version, the one that actually has some beautiful design features to it, and you should look — the Planck satellite will be launched, and it will make very high-resolution maps. And that will be the sequence of understanding the very beginning of the universe.
