In poetry:

His shadow disturbs a shadow of balustrades.
The door swings shut behind. Night roars above him.
Into the night he fades.

Chink up the window-crannies and the door,
So that no single breath of air may pass;
So that I'm sealed air-tight from roof to floor.
There, there, that's done; and now there's nothing more. . . .

Perhaps relativistic jets can deposit enough energy or momentum in the surrounding gas to prevent disk formation in elliptical galaxies and in cooling flows in the centres of clusters.
Particles and Fields in Radio Galaxies: A Summary
Consistently with the presence of the jet, the young starburst can be created in the nuclear region close to the base of the jet, by the interaction of the high velocity gas with clouds, while the old stars are located in the circumnuclear region.
The complex structure of low luminosity AGN : NGC 4579
This causes the slits of one given “pair” to trace gas with different poloidal velocity, which will lead to apparent velocity shifts even if the jet is non-rotating.
Jet rotation: launching region, angular momentum balance and magnetic properties in the bipolar outflow from RW Aur
In the magneto-centrifugal scenario, the collimation of the jet is thought to arise from the hoop stress generated by the increase of the toroidal component of the magnetic field after the gas has passed through the Alfv`en surface (see, e.g. K¨onigl & Pudritz 2000).

Such fast shocks probably occur where the ambient gas takes a direct hit from a protostellar jet, while slower shocks take place along the sides (Fig. 1).
The chemistry of high-mass star formation
The location of the protostellar cores mark a transition of the jet pattern: gas inside the binary system is falling back onto the protostars whereas material outside the cores is leaving the disk.
Outflows and Jets from Collapsing Magnetized Cloud Cores
The distribution of the torques indicate that the jet transports almost as much angular momentum away from the inner part of the protodisk as the disk gains from accreting gas.
Outflows and Jets from Collapsing Magnetized Cloud Cores
Cold-gas jets may be used to desaturate RWs. A Spectrum Astro SA-200B 3-axis stabilized bus with RWs for fine pointing and thrusters for RW desaturation is a good platform (Gerber et al., 2003).

These observations strongly suggest that the propagation of one or several shocks in a protostellar jet entrain the ambient molecular gas and produces the lowvelocity molecular outflow (see Sec. 3).
Molecular Outflows in Low- and High-Mass Star Forming Regions
Kelvin-Helmholtz instabilities along the jet/environmental boundary lead to the formation of a turbulent viscous mixing layer, through which the cloud molecular gas is entrained (Cant ´o and Raga, 1991; Raga et al., 1993; Stahler, 1994; Lizano and Giovanardi, 1995; Cant ´o et al., 2003, and references therein).
