Description

In this talk I'll survey the current observational status in cosmology, highlighting recent developments such as results from the Planck satellite, and speculate on what we might achieve in the future. In the near future some important milestones will be exploration of the neutrino sector, and much better constraints on the physics of the early universe via B-mode polarization. In the far future we can hope to measure a variety of cosmological parameters to much higher precision than they are currently constrained.
