   Brownsville The Herald (Newspaper) - June 15, 1995, Brownsville, Texas                                 Page 2 ■ Thursday, June 15,1995 ■ The Brownsville Herald  Astronomers find celestial void actually filled with gas  PITTSBURGH (AP) — Vast roaches of space thought to be cosmic voids actually contain large clouds of gas that may ho "failed galaxies" or the remnants of long-dead stars, an astronomer reports.  John Stocke, an astronomer at the University of Colorado in Boulder, said an analysis of light spectra measurements l\v (he Hubble Space Telescope has put a new spin on ideas about the distribution of matter in the liverse and changed views aut what were thought to be  wide areas of empty space.  'The voids are not empty," said Stocke. "We don't know what this stuff is. Some of it seems most likely to be hydro-  Astronomers 25 .wars ago located the cosmic voids after mapping the distribution of galaxies in space well beyond the Milky Way.  Clouds within the voids are up to 167 million light years across and the areas studied by Stocke and his colleagues are about 150 million light years  from Earth.  The clouds were detected by measuring the spectra of light arriving at the Hubble from distant, very bright stars. As the light passes through the clouds, some of it is soaked up by the molecules. The type of absorption gives a chemical signature for some of the gas as hydrogen, said Stocke.  Hydrogen is a basic building block for the universe. It is the key component in stars. It is believed that stars form when hydrogen, prompted by gravity,  collects and becomes increasingly dense. Eventually, the gas becomes so dense that it triggers the nuclear fires that give stars their shine.  But for the clouds detected in the cosmic voids, this may never have happened, said Stocke.  "These clouds could be failed galaxies," he said. Gas molecules in the clouds are bound together by gravity, "but they never got enough to form stars. The attempt was made, but the density wasn't great enough."  Another possibility is that the  voids contain very old, very dim galaxies that lived and are slowly blinking out, Stocke said.  "They could be remnants of dwarf galaxies whose stars lived and died and then just faded away," he said. "But that's just speculation."  The probing of the empty spaces used a technique that may be used to search for dim matter elsewhere in the universe, said Stocke.  By focusing the Hubble on very bright, distant objects, the light is made to act like a  searchlight, illuminating any material between the telescope and the object. The light can be separated into wavelengths, just as a glass prism can separate sunlight into colors. The ultraviolet wavelengths include a sensitive measure for hydrogen. The method is many times more sensitive than other techniques for studying gas in the universe, researchers say.  Michael Shull said gas clouds such as those found by Hubble may be about 40 times more numerous than the bright galaxies.  bituaries  RICHARD C.
