Aulanier writes about the longstanding discussion on which physical mechanisms are sufficient to trigger and drive solar eruptions.

- New high-resolution numerical magnetohydrodynamic simulations bring an old idea back into the light: the reconnection jet from the tether-cutting model, writes Aulanier.

He uses Star Wars references in the title and abstract of the commentary. - With the agreement of the editor, he shares.
