Bipolar jets from a newly formed protostar
Simulation from Price et al. 2009 showing the collimated bipolar jets launched by a forming protostar after the collapse of a dense core.
Varying magnetic field strengths in protostellar jets
Simulations from Price et al. 2009 comparing protostellar jets at varying magnetic field strengths. The fields increase from left to right as follows: 10, 5 and 4 times lower than the magnetic field strength that would prevent collapse altogether.
