Baryon business as usual

Baryon business as usual

Astronomers have used NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory to find evidence our Milky Way Galaxy is embedded in an enormous halo of hot gas that extends for hundreds of thousands of light years. The estimated mass of the halo is comparable to the mass of all the stars in the galaxy.

If the size and mass of this gas halo is confirmed, it also could be an explanation for what is known as the "missing baryon" problem for the galaxy.

No worries. *abracadabra*

All the Moderators have to strip naked, cover ourselves is mud and chant around a fire pit. Or at least thats the way the Kennedys taught us...

That's what you get for not reading the fine print.
