Results and highlights from Planck

Cosmological results
from Planck, a third-generation satellite mission to measure the cosmic
microwave background, have just been announced.  These results improve
constraints on essentially all cosmological parameters, and have implications
for several preexisting sources of tension with the standard cosmological
model, while also raising new puzzles.  I will discuss these results and
their significance, as well as the next steps forward.
