Dr. Volker Bromm is a professor in the Department of Astronomy at the University of Texas-Austin. He will present the NRAO-Socorro colloquium. His talk is "The First Stars, Galaxies and Black Holes." He will review our current understanding of how star and galaxy formation transformed the conditions in the early universe, in terms of initiating the long cosmic reionization and metal enrichment history. It is timely to take stock of our emerging theoretical framework just ahead of the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope. He will discuss the exciting insights on early star formation, and possibly the particle physics nature of dark matter, from the recent EDGES detection of a global 21cm absorption feature at cosmic dawn. 11:15 a.m. in the auditorium of the Domenici Science Operations Center (NRAO).
