EuroNews looks at ESA's time machine, a satellite called Planck, which will be launched in 2008. Using it, astronomers will be able to travel back in time, towards the beginning of space and time as we know it now.

Planck's ultimate goal will be to help astronomers in deciding which theories on the birth and evolution of the Universe are correct.
