On the Space News series, a clear picture of cosmic scale phenomena has emerged: networks of filaments pervade space and are closely linked to the formation and evolution of stars and galaxies.
The electric universe and plasma cosmology have always predicted that the filaments are in fact electrical Birkeland currents which light the stars and connect celestial bodies across vast cosmic distances.
Recently, two separate teams of scientists, both of whom were attempting to resolve the so-called missing baryon problem, have published papers identifying vast intergalactic plasma filaments. In this episode, our guest Eugene Bagashov analyzes the significance of these independent findings.
