> The Planck Satellite was launched in 2009 and studied the Cosmic Microwave Background and the rest of the millimeter and sub-millimeter sky through 2013. It has yielded a wealth of scientific results both about the birth and evolution of the Universe and about the Galaxy in which we live. I will present some of the history of the project and will try to summarize what I think are its major results, including its latest measurements of the cosmological parameters of the Universe, and implications for recent results and future measurements of Inflationary parameters.
