Astronomers spot “ridge” of plasma linking galaxy clusters

astronomy.com
  • Two groups of galaxies are merging at a distance of approximately 1000 million light-years from Earth, reveals an article that will be published in the journal Science.
  • Astronomers indicate that the ridge that links the two galaxy clusters, Abell 0399 and Abell 0401, is a filament of hot plasma filled with a diffuse cosmic web of hydrogen.
  • Also, the sensors of the telescopes have detected the existence of magnetic fields and relativistic subatomic particles in the area where Abell 0399 and Abell 0401 are connecting.
  • The intensity of the observed magnetic field is about one million times smaller than the magnetic field of the earth.
