We have been following up the i-dropout galaxies found by Rychard Bouwens. We have observed these galaxies with specotrgraphs on the Keck and the VLT.

Left we show our prettiest spectrum to date, a z=5.5 i-dropout galaxy. The exposure was only 24 hours with FORS2. The second paper has a detailed disucssion of this object.

The most recent paper can be found as a PDF File on this webpage as well as be downloaded from arxiv.org
