  • The early universe hosted a large population of small dark matter minihalos that were too small to cool and form stars on their own. These existed as static objects around larger galaxies until acted upon by some outside influence. Outflows, which have been observed around a variety of galaxies, can provide this influence in such a way as to collapse, rather than disperse, the minihalo gas. Gray & Scannapieco performed an investigation in which idealized spherically symmetric minihalos were… CONTINUE READING
