Abstract

The Hydrogen Epoch of Reionization Array (HERA), currently under construction, is a staged project that uses the unique properties of the 21-cm line from neutral hydrogen to probe the Epoch of Reionization (EoR) and the preceding Dark Ages. During these epochs, roughly 0.3 - 1 Gyr after the Big Bang, the first stars and black holes heat and reionize the Universe following cosmic recombination. Direct observation of the large scale structure of reionization and its evolution with time will have a profound impact on our understanding of the birth of the first galaxies and black holes, their influence on the intergalactic medium (IGM), and cosmology.
