The authors propose that the Hall effect plays a profound role in gravitational collapse models of cold molecular clouds, and that it has been generally overlooked previously.

The Hall effect is a come lately, unexpected and unpredicted physical phenomenon that is finally quite well characterized.

It seems to be a messy, but necessary parameter to model in core-collapse events.

What are the implications on the energy budget of binary neutron stars or the Chandrasekar Limit?

We have always know the drawing sitting on the board has some gaps in it.
