First stars, chemical evolution, cosmology

  • What are the major recent accomplishments?
  • What are the specific compelling open questions? (Unexplained observations, problems in theoretical modeling, etc)
  • How can one address these open questions? What are the high impact nuclear experiments, observations, theoretical studies that need to be done?
  • What kinds of experiments, theoretical work, and observations are needed?
  • In which direction should this area evolve in light of expected new observational, theoretical, and experimental capabilities?
  • How does this subfield intersect with other subfields? (For example, is there work needed in other subfields to move this subfield forward)
