The particle beam of a new-born star[^] is visible in this infrared image taken by the Hubble Telescope. These jets are believed to be formed when a new star is forming: not all of the material falling inwards makes it, and instead gets pushed outwards towards the poles of rotation, moving faster and faster and eventually shooting off as a highly accelerated, tightly spinning beam of plasma.
If you look towards the top of the image, you will see where the beam has punctured a molecular cloud, creating a wake.
Well, at least you won't have to splash out on a lift pass!
