I was led to believe that dust in the galaxy was an integral part of the 
process of star formation. In the very early history of the universe, there was 
no dust so how did the stars form without blowing themselves apart as they 
began to heat up. I am just interested/curious but I would be most grateful if 
you could answer this question, thank you.
