Stock Photo - 'Jet in M87 galaxy. Coloured visible-light image of the  core  of  the active galaxy M87.  The core is upper left of centre ... ,  and a long optical  jet  is seen  pointing toward lower right.  The jet is the result of spiralling  high-speed  electrons  being emitted  in  a narrow  beam from the core.  As the electrons move through the intense magnetic  field near  the  core, they emit photons by the process of synchrotron radiation.  Close to the core, the emission  is in the visible waveband,  farther out the radiation shifts into radio wavelengths.  This computer-coloured  image is based on data gathered by the Hubble Space Telescope (HST).
