Description

At some point between the Big Bang and now, the first lights went on: the first stars and galaxies lit up the Universe. Astronomy is right at the point where we may see the light from these first stars and galaxies thanks to the time-machines that are powerful telescopes. The further we look, the longer it took the light to get to us. The soon-to-be-launched James Webb Space Telescope may just glimpse the very first stars and galaxies as they switch on.
