Cosmic Dawn: The Real Moment of Creation

In the beginning the universe was a bit of a let down really, after the big bang nothing else really happened for millions of years. The big bang was not really the moment of creation, the real moment of creation came 100 million years later and it was a magical, metaphysical moment known as the cosmic dawn, the moment of first light when stars began to form.

These first star formations were fundamental with regards to how the universe evolved, they provided a means to forge the ingredients which made you, me and everything else. It was a starting point which lead to the appearance of life.

Astronomers are now trying to witness and understand this moment of creation. For the very first time they now have the tools to explore the very first stars of the universe and to tell the scientific story of our creation.
