High energy emission from YSO jets

Jets from young stellar objects (YSOs) are an ubiquitous phenomenon of star formation. X-ray emission from YSO jets is a recently discovered new diagnostic of the associated high-energy phenomena. About a dozen X-ray emitting jets are currently known. These detections clearly demonstrate the existence of a million degree plasma spatially close to the hundred times cooler gas usually studied. I will present recent results from high-energy observations of YSO jets and their implications for the heating, cooling and launching process.
