Abstract

There is one large gap in our understanding of the early evolution of the universe, namely, when did the first sources of light appear? Resolution of this puzzle requires new theoretical and observational strategies. Several international initiatives are now beginning to tackle the problem, including a major new radio telescope in Western Australia. This collaboration will provide a signficant Australian contribution at the forefront of modern cosmology.
