About the Image

The First Stars, Artwork by Detlev Van Ravenswaay

The first stars. Artwork of the first stars in the universe, thought to have formed over 13 billion years ago, when the universe was only a few million years old. As the universe cooled after the Big Bang, atomic nuclei began to form. After 300,000 years these nuclei combined with electrons to form atoms (mainly hydrogen) and the universe became neutral and opaque (dark ages, bottom). Within a million years dense regions of atoms attracted nearby matter, forming gas clouds and, after 300 to 600 million years, stars and small galaxies began to form. The stars were huge and hot, such as the early super-massive star at right, and lived comparatively short lives before dying in supernova explosions.

About the Artist - Detlev Van Ravenswaay

Detlev Van Ravenswaay

Science Photo Library was founded in 1981 by Michael Marten, one of the authors of "Worlds Within Worlds", a book exploring different ways to observe the universe - from electron micrographs, to images of earthrise taken from the Apollo spacecraft. When Marten started receiving requests for the beautiful images in the book, he had an idea of setting up Science Photo Library. Since then, Science Photo Library has continued to work alongside world acclaimed photographers and the leading science and medical experts to provide a central source of the best science and specialist imagery available. Although the collection started with scientific images, it has grown to encompass all aspects of science and their impact on everyday life.
