Intergalactic plasma filaments confirmed?
On the Space News series, a clear picture of cosmic scale phenomena has emerged: networks of filaments pervade space and are closely linked to the formation and evolution of stars and galaxies.
The electric universe and plasma cosmology have always predicted that the filaments are in fact electrical Birkeland currents which light the stars and connect celestial bodies across vast cosmic distances.
Recently, two separate teams of scientists, both of whom were attempting to resolve the so-called missing baryon problem, have published papers identifying vast intergalactic plasma filaments. In this episode, our guest Eugene Bagashov analyzes the significance of these independent findings.

Filaments are signatures of the magnetic structure of the Universe. Filamentation is a property of plasma. It is created because plasma contains free electrons, making it highly electrically conductive — even more than metals, and even in tenuous cosmic plasmas. As charged particles readily move in plasma, a stronger magnetic field forms around the current that can pinch it into filamentary current strands. However, magnetic fields are not generated by current filaments as currently believed by both the mainstream and the people of the electric Universe. Only the intensity of the field increases. In other words, Filaments occur when magnetic field intensity increases and magnetic fields are permanently present in the building blocks of matter.
