Electric Galaxies

In an Electric Universe x-ray and radio astronomies are very important; x-ray because it reveals discharge activity that produces x-rays; and radio because it traces the cosmic power transmission lines in deep space through the polarization of radio waves from electrons spiralling in a magnetic field — known as ‘synchrotron radiation.’ ...

This site has some nice compilations of several cosmological entities ranging from stars to galaxies.
http://www.solstation.com/index.html

http://www.solstation.com/x-objects.htm is one of those places

like http://www.solstation.com/x-objects/cent-a.htm

Centaurus A is a very large and peculiar
galaxy, with a supermassive central black
hole and a pair of radio and x-ray bright
jets. It appears to be a giant elliptical
that has recently merged with a barred
spiral neighbor

Image
Some of the dust inside Centaurus A maps
out what appears to be a barred spiral
galaxy, which has recently merged with its
giant elliptical host and is feeding gas
into the host's central hole to produce
bi-polar jets that are bright in radio
wavelengths

Image
X-ray, radio, and optical images suggest
that the galaxy is in tremendous turmoil
with energetic arcs and jets after merging
with the barred spiral some 100 million
years ago

Image
A 2008 composite image provides
more detail that outlines how the
arcs may be created by tilting
bi-polar jets erupting from the
rotating center of Centaurus A

Image
Concentric shells and a blue arc of
young blue stars around the galaxy
are indicative of recent collisions with
smaller gas-rich galaxies

Image
Blasting from a black hole with as much as
a billion Solar-masses, one jet travels
30,000 light-years in this image, among
neutron stars and black holes that are x-ray
bright from accreting material from companion
stars

Image
The inner 4,000 light-years of a jet
can be seen to erupt from the
galaxy's core at the lower right to
produce more x-rays when it collides
with denser gas at the upper left


Have fun!

I still think that Wal missed an opportunity by not including the most recent results...

(Galaxies formed along filaments like beads on a string!)
http://digg.com/space/Galaxies_formed_a ... n_a_string

A good match to the EU view, in line with plasma physicist Peratt's independent investigations of plasma structure / implications for astrophysical plasmas...
