On a possible source of energy for the ejection of matter from cosmic objects

The transformation of the energy of an accelerating, expanding universe into internal energy of cosmic objects is discussed. The well known fact that Hubble expansion is observed on scale lengths two or more orders of magnitude smaller than the “cells of homogeneity” is taken into account, along with observational data indicating that this expansion also takes place on the scale of the solar system. Changes in the potential energy of individual model objects are examined on this basis and it is shown that the potential energy increases, thereby threatening the continued existence of these objects. An expression is obtained for the mass which can attain the escape energy within a given energy accumulation time. Some estimates are made for the assumed masses of galactic clusters. Over a period of 107 years a protocluster can accumulate enough energy for ejection of a clump of matter with a mass equal to that of our galaxy.
