There is 1 comment on Gazing into Magnetized Interstellar Clouds to Understand How Stars Are Born

  1. If E=MC² is correct: the universe is energy and exists as energy and mass. Energy and mass cannot occupy the same space at the same time. Energy flows from where there is more energy to where there is less energy. Where there is mass there is no energy, so energy flows toward mass. Energy acting on mass creates heat, pressure, movement, speed, gravity, time, information and evolution. Ultra extreme energy, the original universe and the blast area of a supernova, acting on mass adds density, size and complexity to mass. Stars, planets and moons all form in an ultra extreme energy environment as stars, each with a fission core. They form in the bubble of the blast area of a supernova, not in a flat plane. Very small objects lose more energy form their atmosphere than is released in the fission core and soon become moons. Larger objects retain more energy and evolve into gas giants before losing enough energy to become planets. The largest objects live out a long life as stars, but eventually evolve into gas giants, large planets, or explode into supernovas. There is much, much more, but the common denominator is energy acting on mass. Quantum mechanics to Relativity, the universe is energy acting on mass.
