In science:

This loss of angular momentum leads to a “global magnetic instability” and collapse of the inner disk (Lovelace et al. 1994, 1997, 2002) and a corresponding outburst of energy in the jets from the two sides of the disk.
Relativistic Jets from Accretion Disks
Such outbursts may explain the flares of active galactic nuclei blazar sources (Romanova & Lovelace 1997; Levinson 1998) and the one-time outbursts of gamma ray burst sources (Katz 1997).
Relativistic Jets from Accretion Disks
Earlier, Gisler, Lovelace, and Norman (1989) studied jet formation for a monopole type field using the relativistic PIC code ISIS.
