                                                  Observations made with the Hubble Space Telescope indicate that the first stars formed as little as 200 million years after the Big Bang - much earlier than previously thought.

The evidence comes from data that shows large amounts of iron present in very distant, ancient quasars. This iron is made in supernova explosions ending the very first generation of stars in the Cosmos.
