I really found this article interesting because it offers a new way to think about galaxy formation because it's ever fueling new star formation. Cool find

Found this article very interesting as well. Interesting to consider that the universe truly has no end with constant star replenishment.

The way the universe is accelerating in its expansion will eventually cause the stars to not form properly, and the stars will run out of fuel. Not exactly an pleasing thought, but that will not be for a very long time.

This new finding is important, especially because this could help scientists better understand how galaxies formed in the first place. Like Jason Tumlinson of the Space Telescope Science Institute said, the results "also present a fresh challenge to theoretical models to understand these gas flows and integrate them with the overall picture of galaxy formation."
