Not sure if this should be here or Physics........

OK

1. Has anyone observed a galaxy or black hole or stars or any evolved stellar phenomena that is static and does not spin?

2. If everything is indeed spinning, why? Could the Universe itself be spinning and gas clouds and such suffered from something like the Coriolis effect?

3. Could this have been the reason for the first stars to form?/ Could this be why the first hydrogen clouds spun up and collapsed?

4. Could the centrifugal force from the spin be fueling expansion?

Just curious

Well if you look at a large field view of galaxies there are tilted in all different directions and spining in different directions so there certainly does not seem to be an coriolis effect.

3. Could this have been the reason for the first stars to form?/ Could this be why the first hydrogen clouds spun up and collapsed?
There is no need for a dust cloud to spin to form a star - there is usually some angular momentum in a cloud so when it does collapse the rotation increases.

4. Could the centrifugal force from the spin be fueling expansion?
No. If this were the case then you would observe galaxies moving away from a central point - and this is NOT seen.
