New Data About Elliptic Galaxies

In the study of elliptical and lenticular galaxies researches often faced with the unusual light filaments.Galaxy NGC 1275, which is enough close to us and lies in the constellation Perseus, is not exception. This galaxy also has a long filaments of gas.Studying the spectra of these filaments by Cambridge University’s astronomers, showed the presence of carbon monoxide and H2. According to researches true cause of the glow of cosmic filaments is the fact that the cosmic gas, in such galaxies, is not cooled by an ionized plasma, which interacts with cold gas and always warms it, that is cause of permanent glow.
