Abstract: The large scale structure of matter and galaxies contains important information on the evolution of the Universe. Baryon acoustic oscillations (BAO), which is one of the most promising large scale features, can provide an excellent standard ruler that enables us to measure the cosmological distance scales, and therefore dark energy properties. I would like to first discuss the recent BOSS BAO survey results and, second, future 21cm BAO surveys focused on the effect of foregrounds.
