The European Space Agency is releasing an image from its Planck Telescope which shows the moments immediately after the 'Big Bang', known as the 'afterglow'.

It is the oldest light in the 14 billion-year-old Universe and, until recently, was capable of interfering with the signal of old analogue television sets.

Scientists call it the 'cosmic microwave background' and it gives clues about the composition and evolution of the Universe.

The telescope looking at it, the Planck Telescope, has 'tuned in' to the background radiation with more precision than ever before.

We'll found out what it's seen later today.
