The HERA array is a collaborative project being built by US, UK and South African research bodies in the Karoo Astronomy Reserve near Carnarvon. It has a very specific science objective in mind: detecting the signature of the period in the early history of the universe known as the Epoch of Reionization (EOR). An extremely important observational signature for cosmology will come from the time when the young universe came out of its Dark Ages - and HERA is being built exactly to find this signal.
