In this still from a magneto-spin effect simulation of black holes, a spinning black hole produces a power jet (white-blue) along its spin axis. Near the…Read More »

center, the jet direction and rotational axis align with the spin axis, farther away the jet deviates to point along the rotational axis.   Less «
