Abstract
The first of the 10m class telescopes allow us to study the formation of structure in the universe in exquisite detail. New results obtained over the past six years include the measurement of cosmological parameters from the intergalactic medium, the assembly of galaxies from gas, the universal metal enrichment as a result of early star formation, and observations of the interstellar medium in young galaxies on scales of only a few tens of parsecs.
