I want to map image of Cosmic microwave background onto a sphere

I tried this:

i= Import["http://www.esa.int/var/esa/storage/images/esa_multimedia/\images/2013/03/planck_cmb/12583930-4-eng-GB/Planck_CMB.jpg"] 

ContourPlot3D[x^2 + y^2 + z^2 == 1, {x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 1}, {z, -1, 1},

ContourStyle -> Texture[i], Mesh -> None, Boxed -> False, Axes -> False]

enter image description here
