The first stars in the universe are known as protostars, and according to scientists were made up of small grains of dust and gases.

This all came basically from the remains of the Big Bang, which formed the universe 13 billion years ago.

A new computer model was used to find how the prostars formed, which they stated were 100 times larger than our Sun.

The prostars are believed to have burned in small groups for a billion years before dying.

Their study has been published in the journal Science.
