hydrogen is what stars are mostly made Being the reservoir from which new stars are born in the Galaxy, interstellar matteris of fundamental importance in understanding both the processes leading to the formation of stars, including the solar system, and ultimately the origin of life in the universe. Stellar evolution stellar evolution is a necessary consequence of the physical theory of stellar-structure, which requires that the luminosity, temperature, and size of a star must change as its chemical composition changes because of thermonuclear reactions.ken mendozaPHIL.....
A galaxy is a massive, gravitationally boundsystem that consists of stars and stellar remnants, an interstellar medium of gas and dust, and an important but poorly understood component tentatively dubbed dark matter.
Lenticular galaxies are systems whose dark matter, interstellar dust and gas, stars, and stellar remnants are bound together gravitationally as intermediates between elliptical and spiral galaxies. Like spiral galaxies, they have little or no interstellar matter for ongoing star formation. But like elliptical galaxies, they have quite a bit of dust in their disks, qualify as early galaxies on the process of passive evolution, and shelter aging stars.
Asteroid belt. They are not "interstellar", of course.
Gravity plays an important role in the birth of a star. It concentrates matter in the interstellar medium to the point where fusion occurs.

In astronomy, the interstellar medium [See Link] is the gas and dust that pervade interstellar space: the matter that exists between the stars within a galaxy. It fills interstellar space and blends smoothly into the surrounding intergalactic space. The energy that occupies the same volume, in the form of electromagnetic radiation, is the interstellar radiation field.The interstellar medium consists of an extremely dilute mixture of ions, atoms, molecules, larger dust grains, cosmic rays, and (galactic) magnetic fields.
Interstellar matter floats around, and if enough of it coalesces, then it can turn into a new star or cluster of stars.
Possibly interstellar gas comes close to your need. GAS is the state of matter with the greatest Disorder
The interstellar medium [See Link] is the gas and dust that occupies interstellar space: the matter that exists between the stars within a galaxy.It consists of an very dilute mixture of ions, atoms, molecules, larger dust grains, cosmic rays, and (galactic) magnetic fields. The matter consists of about 99% gas and 1% dust by mass.
There is little interstellar matter, which means there is little star formation.
No. The ISM is distributed unevenly throughout the galaxy.
Galaxies can not be classified or defined regarding to its importance. All elements that make part of the Universe are important simply because they exist, and for some motive that only God knows they are there.Wikipediasays that >"A galaxy is a massive, gravitationally bound system consisting of stars, stellar remnants, and interstellar medium of gas and dust, and, it is hypothesized, an important but poorly understoodcomponent called dark matter".Well, if a galaxy is still poorly understood..... We live in a galaxy, obviously it is important, otherwise we couldn't have a place to live.
it is the study of matter
The Milky Way Galaxy contains interstellar matter that may form new stars.

Gravity draws matter inward to trigger star formation.
evolution does not depend on what man thinks.; it does not really matter.
Clouds of gas and dust from which stars form are called interstellar matter.
