DISTANT HORIZONS: UNDERSTANDING THE FIRST GALAXIES IN THE UNIVERSE
Grant number: FL110100072 | Funding period: 2011 - 2017
Viewing astronomy from a historical perspective we are immediately faced with a series of fundamental unanswered questions. This project will make a comprehensive study of the formation of the first galaxies, and provide answers to the questions of how and when the first generation of galaxies formed, and what they looked like.
