Researchers have pieced together Hubble images of jets from newborn stars into timelapse movies that reveal the interstellar fluid mechanics responsible for the formation of stars like our sun. These jets stream out clumps of matter that has fallen on the new star. When faster moving eddies impact slower ones, bow shocks can form, much like shockwaves running before an airplane.
