strings of stars

    Sorry. This string does not seem surprising or otherwise amazing. Have seen hundreds of them in tenths of pictures of Milkyway Projet. They also seem to have a paraboloid shape. Have thought of them as being generated within massive flows in some galaxy regions (they do not appear everywhere), the most exciting possibility, as if some regions behaved like a turbulent fluid. This could be demonstrated by a progressive aging from one extreme to the other of each string.
