The first stars are believed to have formed a few hundred million years after the big bang in so-called dark matter minihalos with masses ∼ 10 6 M . Their radiation lit up the Universe for the first time, and the supernova explosions that ended their brief lives enriched the intergalactic medium with the first heavy elements. Influenced by their feedback, the first galaxies assembled in halos with masses ∼ 10 8 M , and hosted the first metal-enriched stellar populations.
