Only later was it understood that the first spectrum arose from the neutral atom (Fe), while the second spectrum arose from ionized iron (Fe+).
A more perfect kind of lubricating and cooling technological means is cooled ionized air.
IGM is mostly hydrogen (though it has heavier elements too) where the electrons have broken away from their atoms, making the gas charged or ionized. A common theory to explain how the IGM became ionized says it happened due to the radiation from intense ultraviolet originating in star-forming galaxies, but there is disagreement whether this was the only phenomenon that got IGM to its current state.
Data were analyzed from 2013 to 2015 comparing total calcium to corrected calcium in cases in which there was an ionized calcium result within 1 hour of the total calcium result.
