In 2013, the Planck results showed, for the first time, a discrepancy in the cosmological parameters determined from the cosmic microwave background (CMB) and the number counts of galaxy clusters. This inconsistency was also confirmed by the 2015 Planck results and by independent weak lensing and X-ray observation analyses. Researchers at IAS performed a re-analysis, using the 2016 Planck results, and have shown that the CMB and galaxy cluster data now actually converge to the standard model of cosmology, with cold dark matter and a cosmological constant.
