Why Does The Inside Of The Solar System Not Spin Faster?

The motion of a tiny number of charged particles may solve a longstanding mystery about thin gas disks rotating around young stars

They contain a small fraction of the mass of the star around which they swirl;

 They are called accretion disks because the gas in these disks spirals slowly inward toward the star.

The inward spiral motion of the accretion disk is akin to a skater drawing their arms

 researchers have investigated many possible explanations for why accretion disk angular momentum is not conserved

e leading current theory is that magnetic fields create what is called a “magnetorotational instability”

The computer simulation showed collisions between neutral atoms and a much smaller number of charged particles would cause positively charged ions,
