NIRVANA MHD simulation of a magnetically collimated jet (magnetic field lines in red), which is driven from a circumplanetary accretion disk. The visualization shows a zoom-in of the global simulation, which covers the entire circumstellar disk. Adaptive grid refinement allows to resolve the flow (streamlines in white) around the embedded planet.
