Photo: It looked uninteresting at first, but I let it run for a while and it got amazingly hot!  Before a system like this stabilizes, lots of stuff slingshots out of its gravity well, and the stellar wind blows out a nice little pocket for it.Photo: You can't see it in the pic, but there's something blocking the other particle jet... It must be just like Hell, down there!Photo: A stellar nursery -- These all formed accretion discs, except the lower left one; It got very hot though, see the 1st pic in the album...  The elongated one is seen edge-on, and is similar to the others.
