Gas Cloud Strainer?
in the collision of two gas clouds — the friction will be relaxed if they resolve into jets that tunnel through the opposing clouds. As they do, they'll stretch the Debye sheaths into comas, as in Figure 4, establishing a linear body force. So hydrodynamic jets produce electrostatic filaments. Once formed, they'll snap together.
You seem to make it sound like gas clouds are conscious beings that don't like friction, so they decide to resolve into tunneling jets. Can you describe this more mechanically? How does friction cause cloud particles to form into jets or filaments? And won't the body force be sharp points, like holes in a strainer, instead of linear? Instead of hydrodynamic jets producing electrostatic filaments, isn't it the opposing cloud acting as a strainer that produces the filaments, like making spaghetti?
In this paper you don't seem to explain how filaments increase in length and thickness. Do you? If so, can you point out which paragraph/s?
Celeste indicates in her last post in the Most Thorough Model thread at the TB forum that she's trying to prove that Gould's Belt is a current filament that formed the Sun and other stars. She says the density is reduced inside this belt, the diameter is about 3,000 ly, and it's at about a 20 degree angle to the plane of the Milky Way. Some illustrations show it being a wave that tops out above the Milky Way central bulge and intersects the disk in the region of the Sun, as well as on the opposite side of the galaxy. It's like a sine wave. Do you have any ideas about what that wave could be caused by?
And, by the way, do you have a more thorough critique of the EU model of star formation?
