Astronomers discover a massive galaxy ’shipyard’ in the distant universe
”At first, the observations of G237 implied a total star formation rate that was unrealistically high, and the team struggled to make sense of the data. The G237 protocluster seemed to be forming stars at a rate of 10,000 times that of the Milky Way, the authors note. At that rate, the protocluster is expected to rapidly use up its stellar fuel and subsequently settle down into a complex system similar to the Virgo supercluster.
”Each of the 63 galaxies discovered so far in G237 was like a star factory in overdrive,” Frye said. ”It’s as if the galaxies were working on overtime to the assemble stars. The rate of production was unsustainable. As such a pace, the supply chains are expected to break in the near future, and in a way that permanently shuts down the galaxy shipyard.”
Such high yields can only be maintained by a continuous injection of fuel, which for stars is hydrogen gas. Frye said the result required an efficient and unbroken supply chain that drew in unreasonably-large amounts of fresh gas to fuel the star-forming factories.
”We don’t know where that gas was coming from,” she said.”
Mutta mehän tiedämme mistä sitä laajenevaa pimeää ainetta työntyy ulos 😃
Tiedämme myös sen miten tästä laajenevasta pimeästä aineesta syntyy nopeaan tahtiin uusia laajenevia tähtiä ilman minkäänlaisia vetäviä voimia 😃
Tässä muistutus 3 D animaationa 😃
