When it comes to the role of magnetism in the formation of stars, size might not matter.A team of researchers led by*Josep Girart, of the*Institut de Ciències de l’Espai (in Spain), studied the*slow evolution of a dust cloud into a massive star, and realized that the*cloud’s magnetic field controls the star’s development more than any [...]

Isn't it more correct to state that electromagnetic fields are the dominant force in early star formation? And yes, what is creating the fields?

And here I was thinking we could replace all the Electric Universe Threads, with....Magnetic Universe Threads...:shifty::whistle::lol: pete

It is painfully obvious it would be easier to morf an electromagnetic field into the twisted vortexs swimming in jets and blazers than by using the constructs of a black hole event horizon. There are obvious limits to an electrodynamic approach as well. None of this will ever be resolved until the relationship between gravity and the electrodynamic universe is more fully understood.
