But we pumped 'er into port just before the day was breakin'!

In science:

If a SMS is differentially rotating, cooling and contraction will instead lead to the unstable formation of bars or spiral arms prior to collapse, and the production of quasi-periodic waves (New & Shapiro 2001a,b).
General-Relativistic MHD for the Numerical Construction of Dynamical Spacetimes
The downflow does lead to vertical compression ahead of the next arm, but not to a doubling of the vertical velocity pattern.
3D MHD Modeling of the Gaseous Structure of the Galaxy: Description of the Simulations
Examination of the top panel of Figure 6 leads to the idea that the disk swells at the arms.
3D MHD Modeling of the Gaseous Structure of the Galaxy: Description of the Simulations
In the leading and trailing end of the arm, the scale height increases, as expected.
3D MHD Modeling of the Gaseous Structure of the Galaxy: Description of the Simulations
Conversely, strong fields are present where the stronger field from below has been advected upward. A sudden jump from one to the other occurs on the leading edges of the arms for r > 7 kpc.
3D MHD Modeling of the Gaseous Structure of the Galaxy: Description of the Simulations
Reference to Figure 4 shows that, at low z, minimum height occurs at the interarm bounce, where material is moving outward, while at high z, minimum height occurs downstream of the leading edge of the arm, where material has already begun to move in.
3D MHD Modeling of the Gaseous Structure of the Galaxy: Description of the Simulations
The comparative timescales for bouncing and interarm passage, and the realtive phases lead to complications in the details of the arm structure, as predicted by Martos & Cox (1998) and Walters & Cox (2001).
3D MHD Modeling of the Gaseous Structure of the Galaxy: Description of the Simulations
In the four-arm case, the low z bounce point occurs at the interarm density peak (at z = 0) and the upward motion from the bounce leads the shock/jump structure.
3D MHD Modeling of the Gaseous Structure of the Galaxy: Description of the Simulations
In practice the central null of the transmission map will be degraded by amplitude and optical path differences between the interferometer arms that will lead to a level of noise that sets a limit for the achievable null depth given (Serabyn, 2000).

Moreover, the young stars with the systematical non-circular motions directed towards the Galactic center (the Perseus, Cygnus, and Carina regions) which could belong to the same, perhaps patchy, spiral arm fall nicely on a large-scale structure which appears to be the leading spiral arm (Melnik 2006).
Kinematics of the outer pseudorings and the spiral structure of the Galaxy
The inclination of the local spiral arm, coincident with Gould’s Belt, and warping of the disk (Fig. 5), can lead to potential bias in determining the Sun’s distance from the Galactic plane.
Characteristics of the Galaxy according to Cepheids
Our parameter study has not changed that picture – the modeled distribution and kinematics of H I in the Leading Arm region and around the main LMC and SMC bodies remains similarly unsatisfactory over the parameter space, especially failing to reproduce the observed morphology of the Leading Arm.

In terms of the fitness function, the value of f never exceeds ≈ 0.35 if calculated only for the Leading Arm.
Rotation of the Milky Way and the formation of the Magellanic Stream
This effect is stronger in the case of the SMC as it is the dominant source of matter for the Magellanic Stream and the Leading Arm (see Figures 14 or 16).
Rotation of the Milky Way and the formation of the Magellanic Stream
The plots in the lower row of Figure 15 also offer the view of the area in the plane of sky where the H I structure called the Leading Arm is located.
