Very interesting discovery in the Barnard 5 (B5) region of space where they have found 4 clumps, concentrations, pinches of gas (plasma?) along gas filaments.
Are the plasma, gas filaments the power supply for these proto stars? The actual reason why the proto stars are there?
Or are the filaments there because the plasma, electromagnetic stars are there and need to be powered?
they discovered that filaments of gas in B5 are fragmenting, and the fragments are beginning to form into additional stars that will become a multiple-star system.
"This provides fantastic evidence that fragmentation of gas filaments is a process that can produce multiple-star systems,"

Using radio wavelength observations of dense molecular gas, ammonia in particular, the team discovered that around this protostar are several filamentary gas structures in which they detected three other condensations.
