  • JETS in radio galaxies have a variety of observed morphologies, in particular appearing in both one-sided and two-sided forms. It is not known whether jets can be intrinsically one-sided, or if the one-sided appearance is the result of an asymmetry in a two-sided jet. An asymmetry could be real, or apparent because of geometrical and possibly relativistic effects creating a large difference in the apparent visibility of the two sides. The elliptical galaxy M87 hosts a weak but well known one… CONTINUE READING
