Caption: This is a 3-D snapshot for an evolved black hole (BH) model. The disk and jet near the BH are aligned with the BH spin axis and point mostly in and out of the figure plane, whereas at larger distances the jet points roughly halfway between the BH spin axis and the disk's rotational axis (pointing along the orange cylinder).
