Artwork of a protogalaxy
Astronomical artwork of a protogalaxy, or a primeval galaxy. These were very early, giant clouds of gas which were forming into the first galaxies. It is believed that the rate of star formation during this period of galactic evolution will determine whether a galaxy is a spiral or elliptical galaxy; a slower star formation tends to produce a spiral galaxy. The smaller clumps of gas in a protogalaxy form into stars.
