Contrary to our hypotheses, drift densities, emergence rates, or insect infall did not differ between urban and forest streams.
Most of the hemisphere shown here is very dark, probably because of infall of material from Phoebe and other irregular moons orbiting farther out.
Crucially, the observed amount of infall is explained well by the predictions of general relativity.
Among specific topics are the chemical classification of nearby active galaxies, the chemical variation in the Orion A cloud cores, highlighting the dynamical interaction between planets and planetesimal belts with ALMA, and Keplarian and infall motions around the late-phase protostar TMC-1A.

Here it is intrinsic to the dynamics in (8) and is directly related to the bore hole g anomaly, black holes without matter infall, cosmic filaments, flat spiral galaxy rotation curves, light lensing by black holes, and other effects, all without the need for "dark matter".
Studies of the composition of stars in the galactic disk suggest that the infall of halo gas is still occurring today; the star-forming lifetime of a spiral disk may be prolonged by the arrival of fresh gas from the Galaxy's surroundings.
Quasars constitute a brief phase in the galactic life-cycle, during which they shine as the most luminous objects in the universe, powered by the infall of matter onto a supermassive black hole.
