Session A: Protostellar & Pre-Main Sequence Shells and Disks


The monitoring of Cep A over a 13 year period has shown it to contain interesting aspects of star forming regions. In particular, there are two highly time-dependent radio sources which may be evidence for proto-stars losing their magnetic fields, and a ‘bullet’ which appears to be the head of a high velocity jet which causes the entrainment of molecular outflows.
