 Title:  Chasing the most distant objects
 Speaker:  Dr. Akio Inoue (Waseda University)

Online via Zoom


Searching for the most distant objects is important. Due to the limited time before the observed epoch, these objects can put the most stringent constraint on the structure formation in the Universe. Recently, we have reported some discoveries of such objects with the world cutting-edge astronomical facilities including the Atacama Large Millimetre/submillimetre Array (ALMA). In this talk, I will present some our results regarding the most distant objects which include the most distant oxygen, the most distant emission line and the most distant passive galaxy candidates. I will also discuss a future space mission to find the first-generation galaxies at z>15.
