Dead and lovely

The High Frequency Instrument of Planck died the 14th of January 2012. Indeed, the cooling system of bolometers (Planck detectors of photons ranging from 100 to 857 GHz thanks to temperature differences measurements) does not do its job anymore, as expected. Now, there is one year left since the delivery of public data, which means one year to publish cosmological results…Let’s hurry !
