If you have a question about this talk, please contact Paula younger.

I will review recent developments in finding galaxies beyond redshift 6 (within the first billion years of history), applying the Lyman break technique to images from the new WFC3 camera on HST . I will discuss the inferred star formation rates and luminosity functions, and discuss the role UV photons from these galaxies might play in reionizing the Universe.
