And fall unwitting into Envies Trap!

In galaxy clusters, X-ray hot gas is trapped in a gravitational potential well and shocks and/or turbulence are produced as smaller substructures with their own hot gas halos fall into and merge with the dominant cluster.
Multiwavelength Astronomy and CTA: X-rays
The radial density profile of the gas on these scales is approximately ρ ∝ R−2.2, and hence the density falls off too quickly to trap the HII region within the minihalo (see e.g Whalen, Abel & Norman, 2004; Alvarez, Bromm & Shapiro, 2006; Abel, Wise & Bryan, 2007; Yoshida et al., 2007).
The First Stars
What is the further fate of the central object? Once the gas has collapsed to densities above ∼ 1017 cm−3 and radii < 1016 cm, Thomson scattering traps the photons, and the cooling time consequently becomes much larger than both the free-fall and viscous timescales (see for details).
