Milky Way Surrounded by halo of hot Gas

I'll save pasting the entire article, you can read it here though.

I wonder what this implies for science and what religous people will say of it.

It could be god telling us that deep fried milky way bars are part of His divine plan.

All I can think is that it damages starships and vastly magnifies peoples ESP abilities.
An Omnipowerful God needed to sacrifice himself to himself (but only for a long weekend) in order to avert his own wrath against his own creations who he made in a manner knowing that they weren't going to live up to his standards.

And you should feel guilty for this. Give me money.

So at least some of the "missing matter" of the universe has simply been spread too thin for us to easily detect? Interesting, if it pans out.

Thanks, Go!

I'm sure there's at least one fundy out there who will crow pathetically about scientists "changing their minds again", and that this somehow invalidates all current cosmology and (somehow) biology, therefore God!!
Live a good life... If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. I am not afraid.

The scientists determined the temperature of the absorbing halo is between 1 million and 2.5 million kelvins, or a few hundred times hotter than the surface of the sun.
So no intergalactic travel then...

Id be happy if we could just move fast enough to leave the Sol system.
