via Signal detected from ‘cosmic dawn,’ the birth of the first stars – AOL News

The moment when the first stars in the universe lit up the night sky, known as “cosmic dawn,” was detected by scientists this week in a “revolutionary” finding through a faint radio signal.

The signal suggests that the first stars were created about 180 million years after the big bang. Scientists from Arizona State University said in the paper — published in the journal Nature — that that the signal also contained evidence of the existence of dark matter, a potential second breakthrough into the history of the universe.
