Even though theres no air blowing around in space, the cosmos can be a pretty windy place. Winds made of gas particles whip around galaxies at high speeds. Sometimes, these winds get recycled when they are ejected out of galaxies into intergalactic space, and then sucked back in. Daniel Angls-Alczar, an astrophysicist at Northwestern University in Illinois, and his colleagues recently decided to study the process behind wind recycling. They plugged a bunch of data into computer simulations of galaxy formations, ready to compare their results with previous models. They got a big surprise instead. The simulations showed that supernovae, the explosions of dying stars, can produce winds of gas that can escape their parent galaxy, travel for billions of years across intergalactic space, and become absorbed into a different galaxy, where the newly arrived atoms may form new stars. The simulations demonstrated that gas flows from smaller galaxies to larger galaxies, like the Milky Way. The researchers dubbed the phenomenon, which Angls-Alczar said hasnt been studied before, intergalactic transfer. Pictured here are galaxies M81 and M82, possible galaxies with intergalactic transfer, in the constellation Ursa Major. Swipe right to view a simulation of intergalactic winds near galaxies.

With his gently sloped mouth and perpetually arched eyebrows, Arizona Republican senator Jeff Flake wears a default expression that might be described as resting troubled and saddened face. He doesnt relish criticizing other people, but when he does, it is usually in a fatherly tone of disappointment (he has five children, who have presumably given him some practice). He sometimes seems as if he has just crash-landed here in a time machine from some bygone era of seersucker suits and polite disagreements. In todays climate of staged presidential beheadings, and reporter body-slamming, and senatorial f-bomb-dropping, the gentleman from Arizona seems altogether uncomfortable. Flake is betting his Senate seat on the political appeal of decencybut can that pay off in Trumps America?

From our friends at Citylab (follow them @Citylab): Pittsburgh has declared itself an inclusive innovation city, meaning it is committed to making sure that white people arent the only beneficiaries of the tech-based economy its trying to cultivate. So how''s that working out?
