Filaments As Fuel
A study of dark matter driving galaxy formation concluded intergalactic filaments provide fuel to galaxy growth.
Unintentionally this conclusion confirms the Electric Universe model.
Based on direct observations they found that, in accordance with the predictions of the cold dark matter model of galaxy formation, the filaments are extensive, extending over more than 1 million parsecs and are providing the fuel for intense formation of stars and the growth of super massive black holes within the proto-cluster.
“This suggests very strongly that gas falling along the filaments under the force of gravity triggers the formation of starbursting galaxies and supermassive black holes, giving the universe the structure that we see today.”
we have been able to clearly show that these filaments are extremely long, going even beyond the edge of the field that we viewed. This adds credence to the idea that these filaments are actually powering the intense activity that we see within the galaxies inside the filaments.”
“It is very exciting to clearly see for the first time multiple and extended filaments in the early universe. We finally have a way to map these structures directly, and to understand in detail their role in regulating the formation of supermassive black holes and galaxies.”
Their use of gravity to explain these filaments is interesting.
They ignore the observed electrical activity in the filament. Their instruments observed an 'intense' ultraviolet frequency which would be the result of synchrotron radiation.
The irony here: as they finally understand the role of the filaments they do not.
