  • The plethora of asymmetric planetary nebulae and the curiously high momenta of pre-planetary nebula outflows suggest that rotational energy is extracted from the engines. Magneto-rotational outflows driven by dynamos might be operating therein. I summarize scenarios involving (a) an isolated AGB star and (b) a binary. The efficacy of (a) requires re-establishing differential rotation over the AGB star's lifetime, whereas (b) delivers the angular momentum at the end of the AGB phase when needed… CONTINUE READING
