dark ages

The period between the recombination epoch and the formation of the first bright galaxies. Toward the end of this time the first generation of stars must have formed in protogalaxies, and created the first heavy elements. The absence of observable radiation renders this period ‘dark’. Only when sufficient stars or quasars have formed to reionize the intergalactic medium (as revealed by the Gunn–Peterson test) is this period observable.
