Star Formation and Magnetohydrodynamics: in the beginning, there were clouds of molecules and dust....... and there appeared jets, shocks, turbulence, disks and protostars........... from which emerged stars and planets. How? First, we can sketch the known and suspected stages in the star formation process. You may of course add your own. From this, you can see what parts of the puzzle the following projects are trying to complete.
