In science:

What is remarkable is that the effects of local field inhomogeneity and velocities combine nonlinearly to create this almost complete separation of the two internal states; the effect is not a segregation of states but rather an internal conversion that depends on the direction of the velocity.

However, numerical simulations that can handle both the galactic scale (dynamical friction) and the cluster scale (internal cluster dynamics) are still needed to show the exact role of the internal dynamics for the structural evolution of our cluster models for the time intervals considered here.

Since 1998 the reference frame for astrometric measurements is represented by the International Celestial Reference Frame (ICRF, Ma et al. 1998), which is the realisation of the International Celestial Reference System (ICRS, Arias et al. 1995), de fined by the International Earth Rotation Service (IERS).
