Description

We summarize a study of PKS 0920-397 using our 42 ks Chandra observation in conjunction with our ATCA 20GHz image, and HST/ACS F814W and F475W images. We investigate the hypothesis that the jet X-ray emission is due to inverse-Compton (IC) scattering on the cosmic microwave background (CMB) from the same population of relativistic electrons that give rise to the radio emission. To calculate parameters intrinsic to the source, one must finesse the fact that we do not know the true angle of the...[Show more]
