Empirical constraints on the first stars and quasars

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Empirical studies of the first generation of stars and quasars in the Universe will likely become feasible over the next decade. The Next Generation Space Telescope will provide direct imaging and photometry of sub-galactic objects at z approximately greater than 10, while microwave anisotropy experiments, such as MAP or Planck, will set constraints on the ionization history of the intergalactic medium due to these sources. We describe the expected signals that will be detectable with these future instruments.
