To date, theoretical models have aided researchers as they strive to understand the basic physics underlying galactic phenomena. Rachid Ouyed from the physics and astronomy department at the University of Calgary uses WestGrid computing resources to create computational simulations of magnetically confined plasma jets, propelling his models into a three-dimensional state. Simulations like these could unlock some of the secrets behind the origin and behavior of plasma jets.
