The Cosmic Dawn Center (DAWN) is a new 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.

Using the HST, the ALMA radio telescope, and gravitational lensing, astronomers from DAWN have found six galaxies in the early Universe that died by running out of gas. Exactly how they ran out is a bit of a mystery.
