The X-ray luminous cluster underlying the z = 1.04 quasar PKS1229-021

Abstract:

We present a 100ks Chandra observation studying the extended X-ray emission around the powerful z= 1.04 quasar PKS1229-021. The diffuse cluster X-ray emission can be traced out to ∼15arcsec (∼120kpc) radius and there is a drop in the calculated hardness ratio inside the central 5arcsec consistent with the presence of a cool core. Radio observations of the quasar show a strong core and a bright, one-sided jet leading to the south-west hotspot and a second hotspot visible on the counter-jet sid...
