The cause of one-sidedness in the jets of otherwise symmetrical extragalactic radio sources is a subject of some controversy1. There is good evidence for relativistic bulk motion in the cores of these objects (from observations of apparent superluminal motion, rapid variability and the absence of inverse-Compton X-rays)2. A natural hypothesis is then that jets are intrinsically two-sided and that they remain relativistic on all scales3, the jet closer to us appearing bright as a result of… Expand
