Space Tornado!

This is too cool. A tornado in space! Okay, if it's not on the ground, technically it should be called a funnel. Of course, since this Herbig-Haro object is almost 2 trillion miles long, maybe it should be classified as an F5 to the 10th power on the Fujita scale! :-)

The team that made the discovery was headed by John Bally of Colorado State University. Way to go, John! Go Rams!
