Galactic Super Winds

At https://phys.org/news/2021-11-astronomers-supernovae-superwinds-galaxies… … when astronomers have observed superwinds travelling at extremely high speeds from star clusters, known as starbursts, they have generally assumed the winds were driven by supernovae exploding. The idea is that blast can explain supersonic speeds. It is a basic tenet of mainstream astronomy. However, a recent starburst has upset the applecart it would seem as the star cluster is considered too young to be experiencing supernovae [the death of stars]. Now, a University of Michigan team has published a research paper saying supernovae are not involved. A different mechanism must be involved for the observed super winds. They suggest that UV radiation may be the vector. This is still a long way off the theories embraced in the electric universe. The change of view may have originated in recent observations of the role solar wind plays in our solar system – but on a much grander scale.
