The ESA just released a "cosmic microwave background" picture of the Universe from when it was less than 380,000 years-old.

Not only does the picture show the evolution of the Universe, it also shows the evolution of the technology used to map the Universe soon after the Big Bang. In 1989 NASA sent up COBE to examine the early days of the Universe, then 10 years later, NASA sent up WMAP. And now, ESA has the Planck space telescope. The pictures appear to show the same image, but the resolution has gotten much better.

Here be pictures )
