  • There has been much theoretical discussion of the confinement of the radio jets associated with extragalactic radio sources1. There are now several examples of sources where the minimum pressure inferred in the jets appears to exceed the external gas pressure, which suggests that magnetic pinching may be playing an important part in the confinement2–4. This issue has been highlighted by recent remarkable observations, using the Very Large Array, of the radio lobes associated with the galactic X… CONTINUE READING
