UNITED STATES.- Experts in the field of astronomy from University of Alabama at Huntsville (UAH) have made an amazing find. It is a wandering cloud which would be much larger than the Milky Way and that it would have a temperature of no less than 36 thousand degrees Celsius. Likewise, it was specified that its total mass exceeds 10 thousand times the Sun, a true madness.
In this sense, it was specified that said cloud is located in “an earth without galaxies.” Recall that this type of gas accumulation was discovered in the Leo Cluster. “This is an exciting and surprising discovery. It shows that there are always new surprises in astronomy, as the oldest of the natural sciences ”, revealed Ming Sun, professor of Physics at the UAH.
Meanwhile, he explained that the cloud was discovered by XMM data in a cluster of galaxies. In addition, he added that thousands of them are linked by a very tenuous hot gas, but with temperatures close to 100 million K. “However, the cloud is not associated with any galaxy and is in a ‘land without galaxies'”, he added the expert pointing out the possibility of originating from an unknown galaxy.
On the other hand, Ming Sun explained that the gas in the cloud is removed by the pressure of the hot gas and with a speed of one thousand to two thousand kilometers per second. In addition, the team of astronomers and astronomers revealed in a timely manner that the process of this removal of the gas is no less than 50 times faster than the speed at which the Earth orbits around the Sun.
It’s like when your hair and clothes fly backwards when you run forward against a strong headwind. […] once removed from the host galaxy, the cloud is initially cold and then evaporates, like ice that melts in the summer. ” Finally the expert in astronomy He indicated that the cloud is believed to be very old and has survived for hundreds of millions of years, which is rare.
