Colgate, S. A. (n.d.). Angular Momentum the Cosmic Pollutant. Retrieved from

Excerpt: When we have too much of something and cannot find a way of getting rid of it, we often think of it as a pollutant. In the game of concentration and collapse of matter in the universe from clouds of gas to clusters of galaxies, galaxies, stars, planets, and black holes, angular momentum is the “pollutant” that prevents the game from being played to the absolute limit, namely, collapse into one awesome black hole for each cluster-sized cloud condensed from the early universe. Only at the scale of the whole universe does the energy in the Hubble expansion of the universe prevent collapse, independent of angular momentum constraints.
