Description

This figure shows the trajectory of a Cluster satellite (Rumba) overlaid on a numerical simulation of an electron diffusion region in the magnetosheath.

The axes represent the distance from the core of the magnetic reconnection process, where the kink occurs, in between the thin blue jet and the red jet.
