In science:

One common feature in all of these observations is that all activity observed at wavelengths longer than X-rays is confined to the central ∼< 30 kpc of cooling flow clusters, which is much smaller than the typical cooling radius, (i.e., the radius where the cooling time equals the cluster age).
A Moderate Cluster Cooling Flow Model
Operationally, a cluster is said to have a cooling flow if its central cooling time is less than the assumed age τ of the hydrostatic system of gas.
A Moderate Cluster Cooling Flow Model
The main assumption of the proposed scenario is that, on a time scale of ∼ 2 − 4 × 109 yrs the central black hole of a cooling flow cluster generates a very powerful radio outburst, resulting in strong radio jets that expand at velocities of several×103 km s−1 in the inner regions (r ∼< 100 kpc) of the cluster.

Thus we have collinear RR charges, which are the central charges in the (space-time) supersymmetry algebra.
