New 3-D Simulations Show How Galactic Centers Cool Their Jets

Scientists developed new theories and 3-D simulations to explain what’s at work in the mysterious jets of energy and matter beaming from the center of galaxies at nearly the speed of light. As much as half of the jets’ energy can escape in the form of X-rays and stronger forms of radiation. Two different mechanisms serve to reduce about half of the energy of these jets. More>
