Map Reveals Location of Mysterious Fast-Moving Gas
International Center for Radio Astronomy Research | 2017 Dec 04
A New All-Sky Map of Galactic High-Velocity Clouds from the 21-cm HI4PI Survey
An Australian scientist has created the most detailed map ever of clouds of high-velocity gas in the Universe around us.
The map covers the entire sky and shows curious clouds of neutral hydrogen gas that are moving at a different speed to the normal rotation of the Milky Way. ...
The map was compiled by taking a picture of the sky and masking out gas that is moving at the same pace as the Milky Way to show the location of gas travelling at a different speed.
The result is the most sensitive and highest resolution all-sky map of high-velocity clouds ever created.
It shows the gas in spectacular detail, revealing never before seen filaments, branches and clumps within the clouds. ...

<<The Spleen’s odd origin notwithstanding, he has for years sought to be a respected superhero in a world that really doesn’t want him. He doesn’t get any respect (even less than the Shoveler, which is really saying something), and he seems unaware that he’s actually pretty unappealing, socially. Sometimes he can be pretty pathetic in his attempts to be social. He’s not actively offensive, he’s just not at all attractive. The easiest way to become Spleen’s friend for life is to pay attention to him. ANY attention. At all. Unfortunately this may bring more attention from Spleen than one is willing to put up with. Spleen is actually a good team-player, and is eager to combat the bad guys because only then he can be with the good guys.>>
