Stars outside the Milky Way galactic plane

I read this news article and it rang a few bells, some of these discoveries are described in the UB, I was wondering if someone could steer me in the right direction.

Hi Pethuel,

Most likely, this sort of "renegade" star was thrown off the Andronover Nebula while the nebula was highly active. Rather than being thrown off in the general direction of the galactic plane it was apparently thrown at an angle something like 90 degrees from the galactic plane.

57:3.4 (653.4) But the nebula had begun to contract, and the increase in the rate of revolution further lessened gravity control; and erelong, the outer gaseous regions began actually to escape from the immediate embrace of the nebular nucleus, passing out into space on circuits of irregular outline, returning to the nuclear regions to complete their circuits, and so on. But this was only a temporary stage of nebular progression. The ever-increasing rate of whirling was soon to throw enormous suns off into space on independent circuits.

In searching for this reference I realized that the revelators apparently very much appreciate the English phrase "far-flung". They use it very, very often. The term might be especially meaningful because it suggests, possibly, that the entire physical cosmos has its origin in Paradise and it is Paradise that ultimately sponsors the activities here.

Thanks Riktare! Great quote and explanation! The "far-flung" observation is interesting too
