How the First Stars Were Formed

first_light.jpg

On Cool Science Radio, John and Lynn speak with Astrophysicist Dr. Emma Chapman, who has written: First Light: Switching on Stars at the Dawn of Time.

 

Chapman shares information on how the first stars were formed, why they were so unusual, and what they can teach us about the Universe today.

 

They also discuss state-of-the-art telescopes that will let us peer into the past as scientists search for the echoes and footprints of these stars and more.
