Notes for later:
The critical ionization velocity is the relative velocity between an ionized plasma and a neutral gas, above which a runaway ionization process takes place. The critical ionization process is a quite general mechanism for the conversion of the kinetic energy of a rapidly streaming gas into ionization and plasma thermal energy. Critical phenomena in general are typical of complex systems, and may lead to sharp spatial or temporal features.
Star formation relies on critical ionization velocity. Yes reader, check out how mainstream science completely ignores this in reference to star formation. Don't take my word for it, see for yourself!
Russia, nice to see you again!
