Introduction
Astronomy started when humanity started questioning the nature of celestial objects in daily life. We have answered many of those questions last several centuries thanks to a revolutionary development in science. Now the frontier of astronomy lies in the first generation of stars and galaxies in the history of the universe. We are studying these early galaxies to help reveal the origin of humankind and what we see in today’s universe. I would like to talk about the recent activities of astronomers on this global project.
