We present Hubble WFC3/IR slitless grism spectra of a remarkably bright $z\gtrsim10$ galaxy candidate, GN-z11, identified initially from CANDELS/GOODS-N imaging data. A significant spectroscopic continuum break is detected at $\lambda=1.47\pm0.01~\mu$m. The new grism data, combined with the photometric data, rule out all plausible lower redshift solutions for this source. The only viable solution is that this continuum break is the Ly$\alpha$ break redshifted to ${z_\mathrm{grism}=11.09^{+0.08… 
Dark-ages reionization and galaxy formation simulation - XII. Bubbles at dawn
Direct detection of regions of ionized hydrogen (HII) has been suggested as a promising probe of cosmic reionization. Observing the redshifted 21-cm signal of hydrogen from the epoch of reionization
Observational test of a double reionization scenario by detecting galaxies at very high z with the GTC
One of the AMIGA (Analytical Model for IGM and GAlaxy evolution) predictions is that the reionization of the intergalactic neutral hydrogen occurred in two stages: a first one at z ≥ 10, due to Pop.
Forecasts for the WFIRST High Latitude Survey using the BlueTides simulation

Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) as probes of Cosmological Parameters
Dark energy (the cosmological constant) is the basic constituent of the universe today that permeates all space, and is the most widely accepted theory to explain recent observations that the
Cosmology, astrobiology and the RNA world: just add quintessential water
Abstract Laboratory generation of water nanoclusters from amorphous ice and strong terahertz (THz) radiation from water nanoclusters ejected from water vapour into a vacuum suggest the possibility of
A lack of evolution in the very bright end of the galaxy luminosity function from z ≃ 8 to 10
We utilize deep near-infrared survey data from the UltraVISTA fourth data release (DR4) and the VIDEO survey, in combination with overlapping optical and Spitzer data, to search for bright
Balmer breaks in simulated galaxies at z>6
Photometric observations of the spectroscopically confirmed z ≈ 9.1 galaxy MACS1149-JD1 have indicated the presence of a prominent Balmer break in its spectral energy distribution, which may be
Detection of the Far-infrared [O iii] and Dust Emission in a Galaxy at Redshift 8.312: Early Metal Enrichment in the Heart of the Reionization Era
We present the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) detection of the [O III] 88 $\mu$m line and rest-frame 90 $\mu$m dust continuum emission in a Y-dropout Lyman break galaxy (LBG),
Evolution of the AGN UV luminosity function from redshift 7.5
Determinations of the ultraviolet (UV) luminosity function of active galactic nuclei (AGN) at high redshifts are important for constraining the AGN contribution to reionization and understanding the
