32km/s is really fast. Typically meteors enter near the escape velocity of ~11km/s. This was going at triple that speed. Perhaps its orbit was opposite the direction of the planets.

Lets not base our behavior in any way on how a bunch of crackpots would react.

Part of me does wonder though at some of their theories. The fact that they want to explain everything with electricity is a little nuts but I guess I don't fully get the assumption that electric effects are always negligible. Given how extreme our universe is that's quite an assumption.
Anyways the electric universe people have a theory that there are berkland-currents between galaxies as an explanation for the fact that galactic clusters are stringed and have galaxies moving along those strings in a similar direction along them.
Berkland-currents are a kind of motion that exists in plasma that looks vaguely similar.
Anyways charge through a plasma has a tendency to produce x-rays if the voltage differential from anode to cathode is high enough and the plasma is thin enough. So their idea would assume you would see x-rays.
Deep space is pretty thin and a charge difference powerful enough to accelerate galaxies would be pretty high even if it did have 13 trillion years to act on it.
So then the question is how you disprove their theory. Well the standard theory would be that these would be ejections from black holes. That would mean any variance it the chimney would travel outwards. The EU explanation would have one stream going in and one going out. So you would have to show matter going into the galaxy. If the EU people could show variance propagating inward they will have one. If Standard Theory (ST) can verify matter going out on both ends they win. Either one can always fall back "why not both" though.

This is really cool. So the conclusion is that the SMBH at the center of our galaxy acted like an Earth volcano, spewing and showering the rest of our galaxy with seeded components to feed and fuel the creations of more stars, and possible aided in creating us indirectly by helping create and spread heavier elements.
