They have many features that occur in low environments, such as a quiet center, spiral arms, and wide circulation. Furthermore, he stated that the results suggest that this type of phenomena is quite common in space, as they are formed by the interaction between plasma and magnetic fields, two things that exist in abundance throughout the universe.
