The Cosmic Dawn Center (DAWN) is an international basic research center supported by the Danish National Research Foundation.
DAWN is located in Copenhagen at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen, and at the National Space Institute at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU Space).
The center is dedicated to uncovering how and when the first galaxies, stars and black holes formed, through observations with the prime telescopes of the next decade (ALMA, JWST, Euclid, E-ELT, HST) as well as through theory and simulations.

In a new, magnificent project — the Cosmic Dawn Survey — professional astronomers are seeking the assistance from the public. The survey is unveiling tens of millions of new galaxies, and to describe their physical properties these galaxies need to be organized according to various criteria, including their “appearance”. But unlike most features in science, the appearance of a galaxy is not always objective.
