The Planck satellite crosses a new quantitative threshold, like COBE and WMAP before it, with results which appear to be consistent with the standard cosmology and the inflationary paradigm. However, it also crosses new qualitative thresholds by opening up new windows on the Universe, for example, through the exploration of non-Gaussian statistics and gravitational lensing. As well as a brief overview of the Planck results, I will discuss the search for non-Gaussian fingerprints of new physics in both the late and early universe.
