In astronomy the word agglutinate It refers to the union of several small bodies to form larger bodies.

For example, the Earth was formed by agglutination or agglomeration of planetesimals, these in turn by agglutination of rocks of ice and stones and these by agglutination of dust.

Just about 600 thousand years after the Big Bang, that is, about 13.4 billion years ago, at various points in the universe some mysterious objects were formed that began to gather mass around them, generating the formation of millions of stars, the first of the Universe.
