Here comes the medium

I have been watching the words that come from people about the interstellar medium. I really hate poorly thought out media releases.

“This is the first detection of chromium and manganese from a cluster. Previously, these metals were detected only from stars in the Milky Way or from other galaxies. This is the first detection in intergalactic space,” JAXA astrophysicist and Perseus study leader Takayuki Tamura says.

You are aware that stars are always part of galaxies. When I talk about the interstellar medium, I am referring to non-baryonic matter between baryonic bubbles.
