Above, the video with audio shows the EDGES detection of a radio signal centered at 78 MHz, consistent with the formation of the first stars 180 million years after the Big Bang. This detection has been published in Nature, here. A second theory paper proposes an intriguing explanation for the amplitude of the signal, which is significantly larger than expected, here.
- Short NPR report about the detection (Morning Edition, March 1, 2018)
- Report on France Culture (first 6 minutes) (Le Journal Des Sciences, March 2, 2018)

Welcome to my Webpage
My name is Raul Monsalve and I am an Experimental Cosmologist. My interests include the measurement of radio and microwave signals coming from space, produced by different physical processes, when the Universe was very young.
The main project I participate is the Experiment to Detect the Global EoR Signature (EDGES).
