INTERGALACTIC MEDIUM EMISSION OBSERVATIONS WITH THE COSMIC WEB IMAGER. II. DISCOVERY OF EXTENDED, KINEMATICALLY LINKED EMISSION AROUND SSA22 Ly alpha BLOB 2
The intergalactic medium (IGM) is the dominant reservoir of baryons, delineates the large-scale structure of the universe at low to moderate overdensities, and provides gas from which galaxies form and evolve. Simulations of a cold-dark-matter- (CDM-) dominated universe predict that the IGM is distributed in a cosmic web of filaments and that galaxies should form along and at the intersections of these filaments. While observations of QSO absorption lines and the large-scale distribution of...[Show more]
