    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The telescope was designed to be very sensitive and have a very clean response to signals from the sky.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“We wanted to make very high-resolution slices across the filament and see if the field really did reverse; if it did, then it's very likely that the field is somehow tied up in the filament.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“An analogy would be when you're scanning the radio dial and you get the same station separated by a small blank space. The size of the blank space is directly proportional to the strength of the magnetic field at the location in space where the station is being broadcast.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“This hydrogen gas emits radio waves with a wavelength of 21 centimeters, so they come in at about 1,420 megahertz on the radio dial. We were able to find that there is a magnetic field permeating this gas cloud and that its direction is pointing towards us above the cloud and then flips to pointing away from us on the bottom.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“What we see strongly suggests that the magnetic field is indeed helical. If it is so, then this tells us a lot about the role magnetic fields might play in molecular clouds and star formation. It would be a major piece of evidence in trying to solve this mystery of how stars form.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The process of star formation is obscured because it takes place in these dense molecular clouds, so it's not yet directly observable. Astrophysicists believe that magnetic fields play a strong role in regulating the star formation by affecting the shape of these molecular clouds.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“You can think of this structure as a giant, magnetic Slinky wrapped around a long, finger-like interstellar cloud. The magnetic field lines are like stretched rubber bands the tension squeezes the cloud into its filamentary shape.”
