Summary of magnetically channeled wind shock model applied to q1Ori C
The x-ray emission lines of q1Ori C
are quite narrow at all observed viewing
angles -- as our MHD
And occultation of the magnetosphere by the star accounts nicely for the modest change in x-ray flux with viewing angle.
Aditionally, certain line ratio diagnostics provide independent evidence that the x-ray emitting plasma is close to (but not right on) the surface of the star; And the temperature distribution of x-ray emitting plasma is well reproduced by the MHD simulations.
