The Inner Jet of the Radio Galaxy M87

Kovalev, Yuri
A new image of the inner jet of the radio galaxy M87 was produced in the Max-Planck-Institute for Radioastronomy. It is unprecedented in its combination of sensitivity and spatial resolution, providing details down to only three light months in size. It shows a highly collimated jet which appears limb-brightened and also a faint counter-jet which are analyzed within the framework of the current theoretical models.
