X-rays from the radio halo of Virgo A = M87 Abstract The purpose of this study is to investigate in more detail the associated X-ray and radio emission in the Virgo A halo discovered by SGF.

The nuclear starburst, flat X-ray spectrum spiral galaxy NGC shows a one-sided jet in radio and X-rays, extending out to ( kpc) to the SW of the galaxy. This book gives both a comprehensive and detailed account of the current theoretical and observational investigations of the radio galaxy M87 in the Virgo cluster.

A number of introductory chapters provide a general overview, which makes the book accessible also to non-specialists in the field. We report performance verification observations of the giant elliptical galaxy M87 in the Virgo Cluster with the MOS, pn, and optical monitor instruments on board of XMM-Newton.

With the energy sensitive imaging instruments MOS and pn we obtain the first spatially constrained X-ray spectra of the nucleus and the jet of the galaxy. The good photon statistics of the pn and MOS allow a detailed. ROSAT X-ray images and spectra of the inner parts of the Virgo cluster around M87 are presented and compared with a new deep radio map.

Apart from the emission peaked on M87, a roughly linear structure, noted previously by Feigelson et al. using Einstein Observatory data and correlated with the outer radio halo, is by: Young cavities in the X-ray-emitting hot gas in galaxy clusters are often filled with radio synchrotron emission from cosmic rays.

However, in the M87/Virgo cluster, where cavities are less prominent, X-ray observations show a 30 kpc long nearly radial filament of relatively cooler gas that projects from the cluster core into a large (40 kpc) radio lobe.

The galaxy, and its radio halo, sit in a large atmosphere of hot, X-ray loud gas (as detected by the EINSTEIN and ROSAT satellites). From this image we can see that the radio halo is a bubble, with a well-defined outer edge, sitting inside the X-ray emitting atmosphere.

Polarization measurements of diffuse Galactic radio emission at, and MHz have been carried out in the direction of the North Celestial Pole, North Galactic Pole, one.

Nature of the Halo The M87 radio halo, Virgo A, looks like two bubbles which are supported by the energy of poorly collimated outﬂows from the core.

Three observations support this idea. First, the radio halo is the same size at all observed frequencies, from 74 and MHz (Kassim et al ), to GHz (Rottmann et al ). able to reproduce qualitatively both the radio and X–ray morphologies observed in the central region surrounding the M87 galaxy.

Radio and X–ray morphology There is a long history of M87 radio halo ob-servations, starting with Mills () shortly after the initial discovery of the radio source Virgo A (Bolton, Stanley and Slee ). “The giant radio galaxy M87, well studied from radio to X-ray energies, is located in the Virgo cluster of galaxies at a distance of 16 Mpc (redshift z=).

M87 has been observed with the HEGRA stereoscopic system of five Cherenkov telescopes in the years and for more than 80 h.

Since M87 and the core of the Virgo Cluster are nearby ( Mpc; Tonry ), they have a large angular size on the sky ( ¼ 77 pc) and present an ideal system in which to study the nature of by: Get this from a library.

X-rays from the radio halo of Virgo A = M results. [United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.;]. The nearby radio galaxy M87 (Virgo A) is studied with the Einstein X-ray Observatory and the VLA to investigate possible inverse Compton X-ray emission from the 'radio halo'.

An asymmetrical X-ray structure is superposed on the dominant symmetrical emission due to the hot interstellar gas, consisting of broad ridges extending about arcmin. M87 was identified with the radio source Virgo A by W. Baade and R.

The galaxy has a spectacular jet which is better seen on short exposure photographs as shown in Figure This is a directional beam of relativistic+ plasma issuing from the. M87/Virgo. Virgo is the nearest rich cluster to our galaxy.

The cluster is quite irregular and spiral rich (de Vaucouleurs, ; Abell, ; Bautz and Morgan, ), although the X-ray emission comes from an elliptical-rich core surrounding the galaxy M87 ().M87 is classified as a peculiar elliptical galaxy.

It has fairly extended optical emission (de Vaucouleurs and Nieto, ), but. Get this from a library. X-ray inverse Compton emission from the radio halo of M final technical report: November 1, - Octo [Eric C Feigelson; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.].

In X-rays, M87 reveals evidence for a series of outbursts from its central black hole. The loops and bubbles in the hot X-ray-emitting gas are relics of small outbursts from close to the black hole. We compare a very deep X-ray image of M87, at the center of the Virgo Cluster, to high-quality optical images of the low excitation emission-line gas in the.

Due to its incredible brightness in all kinds of viewing, including visible, radio, x-ray and other wavelengths, M87’s nuclear area is known as an “active galactic nucleus.” Both the Hubble Space Telescope and the Chandra X-ray Observatory have tracked a knot of matter within the M87 jet that has been designated as HST Dennison ) have noted that the radio halo of Yirgo A = 3C M87 provides an excellent opportunity to detect IC X-rays because of its high flux (S^ =.

the recessional speed of a galaxy is proportional to its distance from us. The law can be applied to all galaxies; however, the speed of a galaxy in a nearby cluster is due in large part to random motions within its cluster and determination of its distance using the law is much less precise than for a galaxy at a much greater distance.

Abstract. We report the results of detailed analysis of the X-ray emitting plasma halo of M 87, the cD galaxy of the Virgo Cluster. The data indicate that the intracluster medium has a single phase structure locally, except for the regions associated to the the radio lobe structures.
