From New Atlas:

Lunar orbiter to listen for radio signals from cosmic "Dark Ages"

Michael Irving
22 September 2020

The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) has announced a
new addition to NASA's upcoming moon-shot Artemis program. From
the silent skies on the far side of the Moon, the DAPPER
spacecraft will listen out for radio signals from the "Dark Ages"
of the universe, before the first stars fired up.

Beginning around 370,000 years after the Big Bang, the universe
settled into quite a dull existence. For millions of years after
that, pretty much the only things around were huge clouds of
hydrogen gas, but as everything started to cool down, pockets of
that gas condensed and collapsed to form the first stars and
black holes. With those stars came the first ever light, ending
the Dark Ages and transitioning to a time often called the
"Cosmic Dawn."

So far, the earliest signal we've detected comes from radio waves
produced by hydrogen from 180 million years after the Big Bang,
likely caused by radiation from the first stars interacting with
the hydrogen around them. That means it comes from during the
Cosmic Dawn ľ but can we look even further back in time, to the
Dark Ages?

That's the goal of the Dark Ages Polarimetry Pathfinder (DAPPER).
This spacecraft will use a specialized radio receiver and a
high-frequency antenna to listen out for faint radio signals from
the early universe. It'll need a very radio-quiet environment to
do this, and the other side of the Moon is ideal.

"No radio telescope on Earth is currently able to definitively
measure and confirm the very faint neutral hydrogen signal from
the early universe, because there are so many other signals that
are much brighter," says Richard Bradley, senior research
engineer at NRAO's Central Development Laboratory (CDL). "At CDL
we are developing specialized techniques that enhance the
measurement process used by DAPPER to help us separate the faint
signal from all the noise."

And now the NRAO has revealed that DAPPER will be launched as
part of NASA's Artemis program. This program, detailed earlier
this week, will see US astronauts return to the Moon in 2024. It
won't be a fleeting visit this time either ľ the plan is to set
up a permanent human presence there, laying the groundwork for
eventual crewed missions to Mars.

By making DAPPER part of this program, it should reduce the costs
of the mission compared to a standalone project. The plan is to
launch DAPPER from the Lunar Gateway, a proposed Moon-orbiting
space station that will act much like the International Space

A prototype of the receiver will be designed and developed by
NRAO engineers over the next two years, before testing and,
hopefully, deployment.

The Philips PM5540 is a test pattern generator that could be considered a black & white predecessor of the widely used Philips PM5544 test pattern. It has been used in Australia, Abu Dhabi, Denmark,[1] Israel,[2] Qatar and the Netherlands.[3][4][5] A heavily modified version of the PM5540 test card was used by Sjˇnvarpi­ of Iceland from 1966 until 1982, and the latter test card was also used by some regional broadcasters of the German public broadcasting corporation ARD (such as SŘddeutscher Rundfunk and Sender Freies Berlin) as well as by the national German public broadcaster ZDF.[6]
