According to cosmological theory, density fluctuations of Cold Dark Matter (CDM) form the first structures in the Universe. The gravitational potential wells of these dark matter halos suck in primordial gas and provide the seeds for the formation of stars via energy dissipation and cooling, a billion years after the Big Bang.
